PREFACE 



That music lias from the earliest period of time been regarded as one of 
the greatest means of ascribing adoration and praise to Almighty God, is a 
tmth which must be obvious to the mind of every intelligent Christian. 

When at the fiat of Infinite Wisdom a universe sprang into existence ; 
when the "proud waves of the deep were stayed," and the earth wore a rich 
mantle of verdui'e, fi'esh fi'om the hand of its creator ; when the music of a 
thousand streams, mingled with the melody of birds and flowers, the volume 
of inspiration tells us "the morning stars sang together for joy." It was not 
the carol of a little twinkling star at one corner of the universe, nor a choir 
or quartette of the asteroids, but a grand chorus of God's heavens singing out, 
in concert with nature, praise and glory to him who gave them birth ! 

AMien fi'om the land of their captivity the children of Israel passed over the 
Red Sea on diy land, and beheld their enemies engulfed beneath its returning 
waters, a choral anthem, composed by Miriam, the sister of Moses and Aaron, 
was then sung by the multitude, being in number six hundred thousand. David, 
the sweet singer of Israel, called upon the floods to clap their hands, and the 
hills to shout together for joy. And then in the ecstasy of his soul he exclaims, 
'• O come, let us sing unto the Lord ; let us make a joyful noise unto the God 
of om- salvation," Again he bursts forth in strains like these- "Let every- 
thing that hath breath praise the Lord ;'* and again, " Let the people praise 
thes, O God. Let all the people praise thee." 

The services attending the dedication of Solomon's Temple were rendered 
still more impressive and grand by the introduction of music. From the 
account given us in Holy W^rit there is every reason to conclude that the whole 
congregation must have joined in the song of praise which called down upon 
then- heads the blessings of their divine Protector. These are only a few 
among the many instances recorded in the Old Testament- which seem to point 
dh'ectly toward congregational singing. 

Let us now turn to the plains of Judah, and for a single moment transport 
ourselves to that eventful night when a whole multitude of the heavenly host 
singing with a loud voice, " Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, 
good will toward men," appeared to the wondering shepherds and proclaimed 
the birth of our blessed Lord. We cannot think that a part were silent while 
a " quartette," or select few, were chanting the praises of the world's Redeemer. 

When, after a lapse of thu'ty-three years. He who bore our griefs and 
carried our sorrows came to the closing scenes of his life ; when, ha\dng cele- 
brated for the last time the Jewish passover, he instituted the solenm ordinance 
of the Lord's Supper, and said to his disciples, " Do this in remembrance of 
me," here, we are told, they sang a h\Tnn, and went out into the Mount of 
Olives. If a few, instead of all, had sung that hymn, would it have been 
more impressive? 

The Apostle John, in his description of the New Jerusalem, speaks of a 
great multitude which no man can number, and represents them as praising 
God continually. If, then, music is to constitute so much of our blissful 
employment in heaven, why not, each one of us, begin it, as best we can, in the 
great congregation of our Lord in his Church below ? 



IV PREFACE. 

Believing our proof to be conclusive that congregational singing was the 
original method of ascribing praise to Almighty God, we now inquire concerii- 
ing the means necessary to its adoption in our Churches. Our inquiries shall 
be as brief, practical, and simple as possible. 

What is the first requisite to congregational Hinging ? 

Let the people provide themselves with hymn and tune books, at least one 
foi* every two worshipers. 

What kind of books sJiOidd he proc}ired f 

Such books as cont lin the hymns of our own denominations. All the dif- 
ferent evangelical Churches now have their own hymns set to tunes, and pub- 
lished by their respective societies. 

How can the people sing who do not read music? 

Every Church should hold stated singing meetings, for the purpose of rehears- 
ing the tunes for the coming Sabbath, for the general improvement in music ; 
and the whole congregation, with the choir, should attend these meetings. 

How should such meetings he conducted? 

Let them be opened with prayer by the Pastor, closed with the doxology, 
and the music under the direction of the chorister, who should ba well paid 
for his work — unless he is able and willing to give the Church his services 
free. 

What is the duty of the chorister^ quartette^ or choir ? 

To lead the congregation in the singing of all the hymns which are read or 
announced from the pulpit. 

Should choirs ever monopolize the service of song in our Churches ? 

N'ever, no more than a few should monopolize the prayers of our Churches. 

Shoidd organ voluntaries he used in our Church services? 

While the people are taking and vacating their seats a good organ volun- 
tary is always acceptable. 

Shoidd interludes he played hetween the verses while singing the hymns f 

In some few cases a very short one may serve as a rest; but in most cases 
a silent pause is better, and more impressive. 

Should anthems and set pieces ever he sung by the choir or quartette cdone ? 

Just before the minister begins his first service, and immediately at the 
close, a good, appropriate — but spiritual— set piece or anthem will produce a 
good effect when well rendered by the choir. 

How can a general interest be awakened in our service of praise? 

By obtaining the best chorister you can, if possible a devoted Christian, 
whose duty it should be not only to have charge of the music in Church and 
Sabbath-school, but also to teach and drill the people at the stated singing 
meetings. The Pastor can do much to urge the attendance, and make interest- 
ing the praise meeting, and in carrying out the above suggestions. 

Let tha people praise thee, God, let all the people praise thee.

New York, January 4, 1871. 



ADDRESS 

TO THE 

MEMBERS AND FRIENDS OF THE METHODIST EPISCOPAL CHURCH. 

The Hymn Book heretofore in use among us was, in our opinion, unsur- 
passed. But the General Conference of 1848, judging that the volume could 
be improved by a careful revision, and by judiciously multiplying the number 
of hjTnn^^, appointed a Committee, composed of ministers and laymen, to pre- 
pare a Standard Edition of the Methodist Hymn Book.* This Committee, 
having finished the work assigned them, submitted it to the examination of the 
Book Committee, and of the Editors of the Book Concern ; and having been 
approved by them, it came before us for a final review. Our examination has 
been as thorough as the Kmited time at our disposal allowed. Although we 
reluctantly part with some of the familiar hymns of the old. book, and though, 
perhaps, in the judgment of some, they have not, in every instance, been sub- 
stituted by hymns of greater merit, yet we can confidently approve this Revised 
Copy ; and we do, most cordially, recommend it as a greatly improved and 
standard edition of the Methodist Hymn Book. We congratulate you, brethren, 
on having now such a Book as, from the number, variety, and adaptation of its 
hymns, will not require another revision for generations to come. 

In presenting to you this Standard Hymn Book, we believe that we are 
putting into your hands one of the choicest selections of evangelical Hymns 
for Private Devotion, as well as for Family, Social, and Pubhc Worship. We 
are gratified also to add, that no mercenaiy ends are sought in this publication ; 
for after the necessary expenses are met, its avails, if any, will be sacredly 
devoted to charitable and religious objects, as were the profits of the formei 
edition. We urge, you, therefore, by your regard for our Church, and for the 
authority of the Greneral Conference, to purchase only such Methodist Hymn 
Books as are pubHshed by our Agents, and have the names of your Bishops. 

We exhort you, dear brethren, to sing with the Spirit, and with the under- 
Btanding also ; and we shall rejoice to join you in time and in eternity. 
Your affectionate pastors in Christ, 

ELIJAH HEDDINa, 
BEVERLY WAUGH,

Rev. F. Merrick, Mr. R. A. West, and Mr. D. Creamer. 



NOTICE. 



In the preparation of the " Offering of Praise," it has been our 
desire to present to the public a book which should contain the greatest 
quantity and the best standard Church Music now in use. (It contains 
oV'Cr two hundred more Tunes than the " Methodist Hymn and Tune 
Book" of 1857.) To accomplish this end, Mr. Phillips has selected from 
all sources, both old and new, whatever he deemed best adapted to this 
purpose, and we wish to present our thanks to Dr. Thomas Hastings, 
Dr. Lowell Mason, Wm. B. Bradbury, Geo. F. Hoot, T. E. Perkins, 
and to Messrs. F. J. Huntington c% Co., Publishers of the ^' J)idci?ner,^^ 
'^JVeiu Zute,'^ ^^ Day-Spring^'' and other works of the late I. B. Woodbury ; 
and we wish also to acknowledge our indebtedness to Daniel Ayres, Silas 
J. Yail, S. B. Pond, Wm. C. Brown, T. C. O'Kane, Hubert P. Main, 
and Charles H. Greene, Esqs., for gratuitous use of their music, and for 
their assistance in the preparation of the work. 

In connection with this work there is an Appendix," or " Sup- 
plement," containing a choice selection of Scriptural Anthems, Set Pieces 
and familiar " Spiritual Songs," " Chants," etc., etc., which are rendered 
dear to tlie heart of every Christian from their frequent use in our 
churches. The ^' Offering of Praise " would be complete without this 
addition, but it has been deemed indispensably requisite to snpply a defi- 
ciency in Anthems and Set Pieces, so much needed by our Churches and 
desired by Choristers.

My great Redeemer's praise ; 
The glories of my God and King, 
The triumphs of his grace.

Assist me to proclaim, — 

To spread, through all the earth abroad,

That bids our sorrows cease ; 

'Tis music in the sinner's eai-s, 
'Tis life, and health, and peace. 

4 He breaks the power of cancell'd sin. 
He sets the pris'ner free ; 

His blood can make the foulest clean ; 
His blood avail'd for me. 

5 He speaks, — and list'ning to his voice. 
New life tlie dead receive ; 

The mournful, broken hearts rej )!ce ; 
The humble poor believe.

Your loosen'd tongues employ ; 

Ye blind, behold your Saviour come; 
And leap, ye lame, for joy.

ALL hail the power of Jesus' name ! 
Let angels prostrate fall ; 
Bring forth the royal diadem, 
And croAvn him Lord of all. 

2 Ye chosen seed of Israel's race, 
Ye ransom'd from the fall. 

Hail him who saves you by his grace, 
And cro\\Ti him Lord of all. 

3 Sinners, whose love can ne'er forget 
The wormwood and the gall ; 

Go, spread your trophies at his feet, 
And crown him Lord of all. 

4 Let every kindred, every tribe, 
On this terrestrial ball. 

To him all majesty ascribe, 
And crown him Lord of all. 

5 that with yonder sacred throng 
We at his feet may fall ; 

We'll join the everlasting song, 
And crown him Lord of all.

< »")4 Faith sees the final triumph. C. M. 

AM I a soldier of the cross, — 
A foll'wer of the Lamb. — 
And shall I fear to own his cause, 
Or blush to speak his name ? 

2 Must I be carried to the skies 
On flowery beds of ease ; 

"While others fouirht to win the priz \ 
And sailed through bloody seas ? 

3 Are there no foes for me to face ? 
Must I not stem the flood ? 

Is this vile world a friend to grace, 
To help me on to God ? 

4 Since I must fight if I would reign, 
Increase my courage, Lord : 

I'll bear the toil, endure the pain, 
Supported by thy word. 

5 Thy saints in all this glorious war 
Shall conquer, though they die : 

They see the triumph from afar, — 
By faith they bring it nigh. 

6 When that illustrious dny shall rise, 
And all thy armies shine 

In robes of vict'ry through the skies, 
The glory shall be thine. 

OO A hlesiiing on the word. C. M. 

OTTCE more we come before our God ; 
Once more his blessing ask : 
may not duty seem a load, 
Nor worship prove a task. 

2 Father, thy quick'ning Spirit send 
From heaven, in Jesus' name, 

And bid our waiting minds attend, 
And put our souls in frame. 

3 May we receive the word we hear, 
Each in an honest heart ; 

And keep the precious treasure there, 
And never with it part, 

4 To seek thee, all our hearts dispose : 
To each thy blessings suit; 

And let the seed thy servant sows, 
Produce abundant fruit. 

»").) GocPs service delightful. C. M. 

WITH jf)y we hail the sacred day, 
Which God has call'd his own ; 
With joy the summons we obey, 
To worship at his throne. 

2 Thy chosen temple, Lord, how fair ! 
As here thy servants throncr 

To breathe the humblp, f-rvi^nt piayer, 
And pour the grateful song. 

3 Spirit of grace ! deign to dwell 
Within thy Church below ; 

Make her in holiness excel, 
With pure devotion glow. 



4 Let peace within her walls be found — 
Let all her sons unite, 

To spread with holy zeal around, 
Her clear and shining Kght. 

5 Great God, we hail the sacred day 
Which thou hast call'd tliine own ; 

With joy the summons we obey. 
To worship at thy throne. 



131 



Christ's amazing love. C. M. 

PLUl^J'GED in a gulf of dark despair. 
We wretched sinners lay, 
Without one cheering beam of hope, 
Or spark of glimm'ring day. 

2 With pitying eyes the Prince of peace 
Beheld our helpless giief : 

He saw, and (0 amazing love !) 
He flew to our relief. 

3 Down from the shinino: scats above. 
With joyful haste he fled ; 

Enter'd the grave in mortal flesh, 
And dwelt among the dead. 

4 for this love let rocks and hills 
Their lasting silence break ; 

And all harmonious human tongues 
The Saviour's praises speak. 

5 Angels, assist our mighty joys; 
Strike all your harps of gold ; 

But when you raise yotn- highest notes. 
His love can ne'er be told. 



540 



The work accomplished. C. M. 

COME, my God, the promise seal, 
This mountain, sin, remove; 
Now in my waiting soul reveal 
The virtue of thy love. 

2 T want thy life, thy purity. 
Thy righteousness, brought in : 

I ask, desire, and trust in thee 
To be redeem'd from sin. 

3 For this, as taught by thee, I pray, 
My inbred sin cast out: 

Thou wilt, in me, thy power display; 
I can no longer doubt. 

4 Let anger, sloth, desire, and pride, 
This moment be subdue^! ; 

Be cast into the crimson tide 
Of my Redeemer's blood. 

5 Saviour, to thee my soul looks up, 
My present Saviour thou ! 

In all the confidence of hope 
I claim the blessing now. 

6 'Tis done ; thou dost this moment save— 
With full salvation bless ; 

Redemption through thy V)lood I have, . 
And .spotless love and peace.

For all thy benefits to me. 


I will not let thee go. 


So great and numberless ?

And thus thy power proclaim ; 


Behold it written on thy hands,

And call upon thy Name.

Whate'er that idol be.

Calm and serene my frame ; 


He bade my pains remove : 


So purer light shall mark the road 


Return, my soul, to God thy rest, 


That leads me to the Lamb. 


For thou hast known his love.

2 Shine to his praise, ye crystal skies, 
The floor of his abode ; 

Or veil in shades your thousand eyes 
Before your brighter God. 

3 Thou restless globe ot golden light. 
Whose beams create our days. 

Join with the silver queen of night, 
To own your borrow'd rays. 

4 Thunder and hail, and fire and storms, 
The troops of his command, 

Appear in all your dreadful forms, 
And speak his awful hand. 

5 Shout to the Lord, ye sui-ging seas, 
In your eternal roar ; 

Let wave to wave resound his praise. 
And shore reply to shore, 

6 Thus while the meaner creatures sing. 
Ye mortals, catch the sound ; 

Echo the glories of your King 
Through all the nations round.

Exalt thy fallen head ;

Thy beautiful array ; 
The day of freedom dawns at length, — 

The Lord's appointed day.

And send thy heralds forth ; 

Say to the south, — Give up thy charge ! 
And, — Keep not back, north ! 

4 They come, they come: thine exile 1

Where'er they rest or roam. 
Have heard thy voice in distant lands 
And hasten to their home.

And God his works destroy, 

With songs thy ransom'd shall return, 
And everlasting joy.

1114 The dreadful sentence. C. M. 

THAT awful day will surely come, 
The' appointed hour makes haste, 
When I must stand before my Judg(^, 
And pass tlie solemn test. 

2 Jesu?, thou source of all my joj^s, 
Thou ruler of my heart. 

How could I bear to hear thy voice 
Pronounce the word, — Depart ! 

3 The thunder of that awful word 
Would so torment my ear, 

'Twould tear my soul asunder. Lord, 
With most tormenting fear. 

4 What, to be banish'd from my Lord, 
And yet forbid to die ; 

To linger in eternal pain, 
And death forever fly ? — 

5 wretched state of deep despair, 
To see my God remove, 

And fix my doleful station where 
I must not taste his love. 

tIu The conquering love of Jei^im. C. M. 

THAT I could my Lord receive, 
Who did the world redeem ; 
Who gave his life that I might live 
A life conceal'd in him. 

2 that I could the blessing prove, — 
My heart's extreme desire ; 

Live happy in my Saviour's love. 
And in his arms expire. 

3 Mercy I ask to seal my peace, 
That, kept by mercy's power, 

1 may from every evil cease. 
And never grieve thee more. 

4 Xow, if thy gracious will it be, 
E'en now my sins remove. 

And set my soul at liberty 
By thy victorious love. 

i (\C\ " -Awaking from the dust with shouts of 
WilO praise. CM. 

THROUGH sorrow's night, and danger's 
Amid the deep'ning gloom, [path, 
Yv'e, foU'wers of our suff'ring Lord, 
Are marching to the tomb. 

2 There, when the turmoil is no more, 
And all our powers decay, 

Our cold remains in solitude 
Shall sleep the years away. 

3 Our labours done, securely laid 
In this our last retreat, 

Unheeded, o'er our silent dust, 
The storms of earth may beat. 

4 Yet not thus buried, or extinct, 
The vital spark shall lie ; 

For o'er life's wreck that spark shall rise 
To seek its kindred sky. 

5 These a«hes, too, this little dust, 
\ Our Father's care shall keep, 

Till the last angel rise and break 
The long and dreary sleep. 







oJ Goodness and mercy. C. M. 

LET every tongue thy goodness speak. 
Thou sov'reign Lord of all ; 
Thy strength'ning hands uphold the weak, 
And raise the poor that fall. 
I 2 When sorrows bow the spirit down, 

When virtue lies distress'd. 
Beneath the pi Jud oppressor's frown. 
Thou giv'st the mourner rest. 

3 Thou know'st the pains thy servants feel, 
Thou hear' St thy children's cry ; 

And their best wishes to fulfil, 
Thy grace is ever nigh. 

4 Thy mercy never shall remove 
From men of heart sincere : 

Thou sav'st the souls whose humble love 
Isjoin'd with holy fear. 

5 My lips shall dwell upon thy praise, 
And spread thy fame abroad ; 

Let all the sons of Adam raise 
The honours of their God. 

t 384 Godly sorroic. C. ]M. 

FOR that tenderness of heart 
Which bows before the Lord, 
Acknowledging how just thou art, 

And trembling at thy word ; 

O for those humble, contrite tears. 

Which from repentance flow ; 
That consciousness of guilt, which fears 

The long suspended blow. 
2 Saviour, to me, in pity, give 

The sensible distress; 
The pledge thou wilt at last receive, 

And bid me die in peace : 

Wilt from the dreadful day remove. 

Before the evil come; 
My spirit hide with saints above, — 

My body, in the tomb. 

-l AO/» Anniversary of an orphan asylum: 

1(JOO by the children. CM. 

AGAIN the kind revolving year 
Has brought this happy day ; 
And we in God's blest house appear 
Again our vows to pay. 

2 Our watchful guardians, robed in light, 
Adore the heavenly King; 

Ten thousand thousand seraphs bright 
Incessant praises sing. 

3 They know no want, they feel no care, 
Nor ever sigh as we ; 

Sorrow and sin are strangers there. 
And all is harmony. 

4 If aught can there enhance their bliss, 
Or raise their raptures higher. 

New jo3'S in heaven at sights like this, 
New anthems fill the choir. 

5 With what resembling care and love 
Both worlds for us appear ; 

Our friendly guardians those above, — 
Our benefactors here.

AWAKE, my soul ! stretch every nerve, 
And press with vigour on ; 
A heavenly race demands thy zeal, 
And an immortal crown.

That calls thee from on high;

To thine aspiring eye.

When love inspires my breast, — 

Love, the divinest of the train. 
The so v' reign of the rest. 

3 This is the grace must live and sing, 
When faith and hope shall cease. 

And sound from every joyful string 
Through all the realms of bliss. 

4 Swift I ascend the heavenly place. 
And hasten to my home ; 

1 leap to meet thy kind embrace : 
I come, Lord, I come. 

5 Sink down, ye separating hills ; 
Let sin and death remove ; 

'Tis love that drives my chariot wheels. 
And death must yield to love.

Shall I thy courts ascend. 

Where congregations ne'er break up. 
And Sabbath has no end ?

Or feel, at death, dismay ?

To bless the sacred Name 

Of Him that sits upon the throne. 
And to adore the Lamb.

And bow'd the heavens most high, 
And underneath his feet he cast 
The darkness of the sky. 

2 On cherubim and seraphim 
Full royally he rode, 

And on the wings of mighty winds, 
Came flying all abroad.

Their fury to restrain ; 

And he, as sov'reign Lord and Kin^^ 
For evermore shall reign.

The life of nature^ from this hour,

To serve thy will, and spread thy praise.

Make haste to bring thy nature in. 
And perfect us in love.

Come quickly, gracious Lord I 

Be it according to thy will, 
According to thy word.

On whom my help is laid : 
Oppress'd by sins, I lifl mine eye, 
And see the shadows fade. 

2 Believing on my Lord, I find 
A sure and present aid : 

On thee alone my constant mind 
Be every moment stay'd. 

3 Whate'er in me seems wise, or good, 
Or strong, I here disclaim : 

1 wash my garments in the blood 
Of the atoning Lamb.

LORD, at thy feet we sinners he. 
And knock at mercy's door : 
With heavy heart, and downcast eye. 
Thy favour we implore. 

2 Without thy grace, we sink oppress'd, 
Down to the gates of hell ; 

give our troubled spirits rest, — 
Our gloomy fears dispel. 

3 'Tis mercy, mercy, now we plead ; 
Let thy compassion move ; 

Mercy, that led thee once to bleed. 
In tenderness and love. 

4 In mercy, now, for Jesus' sake, 
God, our sins forgive; 

Thy grace our stubborn hearts can breulc, 
And, breaking, bid us live.

Or shake at death's alarms ? 
'Tis but the voice that Jesus sends, 
To call them to his arms. 

2 Are we not tending upward too, 
As fast as time can move ? 

Nor should we wish the hours more slow, 
To keep us from our love. 

3 Why should we tremble to convoy 
Their bodies to the tomb ? 

There once the flesh of Jesus lay, 
And left a long perfume. 

4 The graves of all his saints he blest. 
And soften' d every bed : 

Where should the dying members rest, 
But with their dying Head ? 

5 Thence he arose, ascending high. 
And show'd our feet the way : 

Up to the Lord our flesh shall fly. 
At the great rising day. 

6 Then let the last, loud trumpet soun 1, 
And bid our kindred rise : — 

Awake, ye nations under ground ; 
Ye saints, ascend the skies.

{){)/, Consolationfi in incknexs. C. M. 

¥HEX languor and disease invade 
This trembling house of clay, 
'Tis sweet to look beyond my pains, 
And long to fly away ; — 

2 Sweet to look inward, and attend 
The whispers of his love ; 

Sweet to look upward, to the place 
Where Jesus pleads above ; — 

3 Sweet to look back, and see my name 
In life's fair book set down ; 

Sweet to look forward, and behold 
Eternal joys my own ; — 

4 Sweet to reflect how grace divine 
My sins on Jesus laid ; 

Sweet to remember tliat his blood 
My debt of sufF'ring paid ; — 

5 Sweet to rejoice in lively hope, 
That, when my change shall come, 

Angels shall hover round my bed, 
And waft my spirit home. 

6 If such the sweetness of the stream, 

. What must the fountain be, " 

Where saints and angels draw their bliss 
Directly, Lord, from thee. 

I lOu Secrets of Vie heart made known. C. M. 

ND must I be to judgment brought, 



A 



And answer in thai day 
For every vain and idle thought, 
And every word I say ? 

2 Yes, every secret of my heart 
Shall shortly be made known, 

And I receive my just desert 
For all that 1 have done. 

3 How careful then ought I to live ; 
With what religious fear; 

Who such a strict account must give 
For my behaviour here. 

4 Thou awful Judge of quick and dead, 
The watchful power bestow ; 

So shall I to my ways take heed, — 
To all I speak or do. 

5 If now thou standest at the door, 

let me feel thee near ; 

And make my peace with God, before 

1 at thy bar appear. 

')96 The benefit of affliction. C. M. 

LORD, when to thee my sinking soul 
Did in affliction fly ; 
Thy mercy did my griefs control. 
And all my wants supply. 

2 How of>, when dark misfortune's band 

Around their victim stood, 
The seeming ill, at thy command. 

Hath changed to real good. 



430 



3 The tempest that obscured the sky 
Hath set my spirit free 

From earthly care and sensual joy. 
And turned my thoughts to thee. 

4 Afliiction's blast hath made me learn 
To feel for others' wo ; 

And humbly seek, with deep concern, 
My own defects to know. 

5 Then rage, ye storms ; ye billows, roar , 
My heart defies your shock : 

Ye make me cling to Grod the more, — 
To God, my shelt'ring rock. 

The returning prodigal. C. M 

THE long-lost son, with streaming eyes. 
From folly just awake, 
Reviews his wand'rings with surprise ; 
His heart begins to break. 

2 I starve, he cries, nor can I bear 
The famine in this land, 

While servants of my Father share 
The bounty of his hand. 

3 With deep repentance I'll return, 
And seek my Father's face ; 

Unworthy to be call'd a son, 
I'll ask a servant's place. 

4 Far off the Father saw him move,— 
In pensive silence mourn, — 

And quickly ran, with arms of love. 
To welcome his return. 

5 Through all the courts the tidings flew, 
And spread the joy around ; 

The angels tuned their harps anew, — 
The lon^-lost son is found ! 



1058 Frailty of life. C. M. 

THEE we adore, eternal Name ! 
And humbly own to thee 
How feeble is our mortal frame — 
What dying worms are we ! 

2 Our wasting lives grow shorter still, 
As days and months increase ; 

And every beating pulse we tell, 
Leaves but the number less. 

3 The year rolls roimd, and steals away 
The breath that first it gave : 

Whate'er we do, where'er we be. 
We're trav'ling to the grave. 

4 Dangers stand thick thro' all the ground. 
To push us to the tomb ; 

And fierce diseases wait around, 
To hurry mortals home. 

5 Infinite joy, or endless wo, 
Attends on every breath ; 

And yet how unconcern'd we go. 
Upon the brink of death ! 

6 Waken, Lord, our drowsy sense 
To walk this dangerous road : 

And if our souls are hurried hence, 
May they be found with Go .1 1

BEHOLD the sure foundation-stone 
Which God in Zion lays, 
To build our heavenly hopes upon, 
And his eternal praise. 

2 Chosen of God, to sinners dear, 
We now adore thy Name ; 

We trust our whole salvation here. 
Nor can we suffer shame. 

3 The foolish builders, scribe and priest. 
Reject it with disdain ; 

Yet on this Rock the church shall rest, 
And envy rage in vain. 

4 What though the gates of hell withstood, 
Yet must this building rise ; 

'Tis thine own work, almighty God, 
And Avondrous in our eyes, 

801 Steadfast faith. C. M. 

MY God, I know, I feel thee mine. 
And will not quit my claim. 
Till all I have is lost in thine, 
And all renew'd I am. 

2 I hold thee with a trembling hand. 

And will not let thee go. 
Till steadfastly by faith I stand, 

And all thy goodness know.

Xiitional deliverances ascribed to God. C. M. 



OLORD, our fathers oft have told, 
In our attentive ears, 
Thy wonders in their days perform'd, 
And in more ancient years. 

2 'Twas not their courage, or their sword, 
To them salvation gave ; 

'Twas not their number, or their strength, 
That did their country save. 

3 But thy right hand, thy powerful arm, 
Whose succour they implored, — 

Thy providence protected them. 
Who thy great Name adored. 

4 As thee their God our fathers own'd. 
So thou art still our King ; 

0, therefore, as thou didst to them, 
To us dehv' ranee bring. 

o To thee the glory we ascribe, 
From whom salvation came ; 

In God, our shield, we will rejoice, 
And ever bless thy Name.

Whose judgments yet delay ; 
Who yet suspends the lifted sword, 
And gives us time to pray. 



2 Great is our guilt, our fears are great, 
But let us not despair ; 

Still open is the mercy-seat 
To penitence and prayer. 

3 Kind Intercessor, to thy love 
This blessed hope we owe: 

let thy merits ])lea<l above, 
While we implore below. 

4 Though justice near thy awful throne 
Attends thy dread command. 

Lord, hear thy servants, hear thy Son, 
And save a guilty land.

WJiat is prayer ? 



C. M 



PRAYER is the soul's sincere desire, 
Utter'd or unexpress'd ; 
The motion of a hidden fire 
That trembles in the breast. 

2 Prayer is the burden of a sigh, — 
The falling of a tear, — 

The upward glancing of an eye, 
When none but God is near. 

3 Prayer is the simplest form of speech. 
That infant lips can try ; 

Prayer, the sublimest strains that reach 
The Majesty on high. 

4 Prayer is the Christian's vital breath, 
The Christian's native air; 

His watchword at the gates of death, — 
He enters heaven with prayer. 

5 Prayer is the contrite sinner's voice, 
Returning from his ways ; 

While angels, in their songs, rejoice, 
And cry, — Behold, he prays ! 

6 Thou, by whom we come to God, 
The Life, the Truth, the Way,— 

The path of prayer thyself hast trod : — 
Lord, teach us how to pray

Exulting in the final victory. 



TITIIEN the last trumpet's awful voice 
Vt This rending earth shall shake, — 
When opening gi-aves shall yield th.ir 
chai'ge. 
And dust to life awake, — 

2 Those bodies that corrupted fell 
Shall incorrupt arise. 

And mortal forms shall spring to life 
Immortal in the skies. 

3 Behold, what heavenly prophets sr.ng 
Is now at last fulfill'd ; 

And Death yields up his ancient reign, 
And, vanquish'd, quits the field. 

4 Let faith exalt her joyful voice. 
And now in triumph sing : — 

Grave, where is thy victory ? 
And where, Death, thy sting ?

A heart that always feels thy blood, 
So freely spilt for me : — 

2 A heart resign'd, submissive, meek, 
My great Redeemer's throne ; 

Where only Christ is heard to speak,- 
Where Jesus reigns alone.

Believing, true, and cicc:i:

And full of love divine ; 

Perfect, and right, and pure, and good, 
A copy. Lord, of thine. 

5 Thy nature, gracious Lord, impart ; 
Come quickly from above ; 

Write thy new name upon my heart, — 
Thy new, best name of Love.

Possess the promised rest.

LORD, I believe a rest remains 
To all thy people known; 
A rest where pure enjoyment reigns, 
And thou art loved alone ; 

2 A rest where all our soul's desire 
Is fix'd on things above ; 

Where fear, and sin, and grief expire, 
Cast out by perfect love. 

3 that I now the rest might know. 
Believe, and enter in : 

iSow, Saviour, now the power bestow, 
And let me cease from sin. 

4 Remove this hardness from my heart ; 
This unbelief remove : 

To me the rest of faith impart, — 
The Sabbath of thy love. 



THERE is a fountain fill'd with blood, 
Drawn from Imraanuel's veins ; 
And sinners, plunged beneath that flood, 
Lose all their guilty stains. 

2 The dying thief rejoiced to see 
That fountain in his day ; 

And ther-e may I, though vile as he. 
Wash all my sins away. 

3 Thou dying Lamb ! thy precious blood 
Shall never lose its power 

Till all the ransom'd Church of God 
Are saved, to sin no more. 

4 E'er smce, by faith, I saw the stream 
Thy flowing wounds supply, 

Redeeming love has been my theme, 
And shall be, till I die. 

5 Then, in a nobler, sweeter song, 
I'll sing thy power to save, 

When this poor hsping, stamm'iing tongue, 
Lies silent in the grave.

Yet fairer, and in strength complete,

Fulfil our heart's desire ; 

And let us to thy glory live, 
And in thy cause expire. 

4 Our souls and bodies we resign ; 
"With joy we render thee 

Our all, — no longer ours, but thine 
To all eternity. 



2 Though on our heads no tongues of fire 
Their wondrous powers impart,

Beyond the angels go, —

Above the creature's sight, 

And prostrate seraphim adore 
The glorious Infinite. 

3 The brightne.'^s of his glory leaves 
Description far below; 

Nor man's nor angel's heart conceives 
How deep his mercies flow.

The treasures of his love.

C. M. 



EATHER of Jesus Christ, my Lord 
I humbly seek thy fkce ; 
Encouraged by the Saviour's word 
To ask thy pard'ning grace. 

2 Ent'ring into my closet, I 
The busy world exclude ; 

In secret prayer for mercy cry, 
And groan to be renew 'd. 

3 Far from the paths of men, to thee 
I solemnly retire ; 

See, thou who dost in secret see. 
And grant my heart's desire. 

4 Fain would I all thy goodness feel, 
And know my sins forgiven ; 

And do on earth thy perfect will, 
As ansrels do in heaven. 



f Light ^hhiinj out of darkness. C. M. 

GOD moves in a mysterious way, 
His wonders to perform ; 
He plants his footsteps in the sea, 
And rides upon the storm. 

2 Deep in unfathomable mines 
Of never-failing skill. 

He treasures up his bright designs, 
And works his sov'reign will. 

3 Ye fearful saints, fresh courage take : 
The clouds ye so much dread 

Are big with mercy, and shall break 
In blessings on your head, 

4 Judge not the Lord by feeble sense, 
Bui trust him for his grace ; 

Behind a frowning providence 
He iiides a smiling face. 

5 His pui-poses will ripen fast, 
Unfolding every hour: 

The bud may have a bitter taste. 
But sweet will be the flower. 

6 Blind unbelief is sure to err, 
And sc.m his work in vain : 

God is his own interpreter. 
And he will make it plain.

There the pale planet rules the night ;

And strike the wond'ring sight. 

Through skies, and seas, and solid ground, 
With terror and delight. 

5 Infinite strength, and equal skill, 
Shine through thy works abroad : 

Our souls with vast amazetiient fill, 
And speak the builder God !

599 Morning : The Sun of righteousness. CM. 
"WAKE, my soul, to meet the day ; 
Unfold thy drowsy eyes, 
And burst the heavy chain that binds 
Thine active faculties. 

2 God's guardian shield was round me 
In my defenceless sleep : [>pread 

Let Him have all my waking hours 
Who doth my slumbers keep. 

3 Pardon, God, my former sloth, 
And arm my soul with grace ; 

As, rising, now I seal my vows 
To prosecute thy ways. 

4 Bright Sun of righteousness, arise ; 
Thy radiant beams display ; 

And guide my dark, bewilder'd soul. 
To everlasting day. 

1 OoO GocTs servants safe by sea or land. C. M. 
'OW are thy servants blest, Lord ; 
How sure is their defence I 
Eternal wisdom is their guide, 

Their help, — omnipotence. 
2- In foreign realms, and lands remote, 

Supported by thy care, 
Through burning chmes they pass unhurt, 
And breathe in tainted air. 

3 Wlien by the dreadful tempest borne 
High on the broken wave. 

They know thou art not slow to hear, 
Nor impotent to save. 

4 The storm is laid, the winds retire, 
Obedient to thy will ; 

The sea, that roars at thy command. 
At thy command is still. 

5 In midst of dangers, fears, and deaths. 
Thy goodness we'll adore ; 

We'll praise thee for thy mercies past, 
And humbly hope for more. 

6 Our life, while thou preserv'st that life, 
Thy sacrifice shall be ; 

And death — when death shall be our lot — 
Shall join our souls to thee. 

J J, J Tlie kingdoms are but one. C. M. 

HAPPY the souls to Jesus join'd, 
And saved by grace alone ; 
Walking in all his ways, they find 
Their heaven on earth begun. 

2 The church triumphant in thy love, 
Their mighty joys we know : 

They sing the Lamb in hymns above, 
And we in hymns below. 

3 Thee in thy glorious realm they praise. 
And bow before thy throne ; 

We in the kingdom of thy grace : 
The kingdoms are but one. 

4 The holy to the holiest leads, 
And thence our spirits rise ; 

For he that in thy statutes treads, 
Shall meet thee in the skies. 



yyO Christ, the Conqueror. C. M. 

JESUS, immortal King, arise ; 
Assert thy rightful sway ; 
Till earth, subdued, its tribute brings, 
And distant lands obey. 

2 Ride forth, victorious Conqu'ror, ride, 
Till all thy foes submit, 

And all the powers of hell resign 
Their trophies at thy feet. 

3 Send forth thy word and let it fly 
The spacious earth around. 

Till every soul beneath the sun 
Shall hear the joyful sound. 

4 may the great Redeemer's Name 
Through every clime be known, 

And heathen gods, forsaken, fall, 
And Jesus reign alone. 

5 From sea to sea, from shore to shore, 
Be thou, Christ, adored, 

And earth, with all her millions, shout 
Hosannas to the Lord. 

Z4:4: We tcill rejoice and be glad in it. C. M. 

THIS is the day the Lord hath made : 
earth, rejoice and sing ; 
Let songs of triumph hail the morn ; 
Hosanna to our King 1 

2 The Stone the builders set at naught, 
That Stone has now become 

The sure foundation, and the strength 
Of Zion's heavenly dome. 

3 Christ is that stone, rejected once. 
And number' d with the slain ; 

Now raised in glory, o'er his Church 
Eternally to reign. 

4 This is the day the Lord hath made : 
earth, rejoice and sing ; 

With songs of triumph hail the morn ; 
Hosanna to our King ! 

644 Retirement and meditation. C. M. 

Tj^AR from the world, Lord, I flee, 
J- From strife and tumult far ; 
From scenes where Satan wages still 
His most successful war. 

2 The calm retreat, the silent shade, 
With prayer and praise agree ; 

And seem by thy sweet bounty made 
For those who follow thee. 

3 There, if thy Spirit touch the soul, 
And grace her mean abode, 

with what peace, and joy, and love, 
Does she commune with God ! 

4 Author and Guardian of my life. 
Sweet Source of light divine, 

And all harmonious names in one, 
My Saviour, — thou art mine 1 

5 The thanks I owe thee, and the love, 
A boundless, endless store, 

Shall echo through the realms above 
When time shall be no more.

TflE gospel I 0, what endless charms 
Dwell in that blissful sound ; 
Its influence every fear disarms, 
And spreads delight around. 

2 Here pardon, life, and joy divine, 
In rich eifusion flow, 

For guilty rebels, lost in sin, 
And doomed to endless wo. 

3 The' almighty Former of the skies 
Stoops to our vile abode ; 

While angels view with wond'ring eyes, 
And hail the' incarnate God. 

4 How rich the depths of love divine ! 
Of bliss a boundless store ! 

Redeemer, let me call thee mine, — 
Thy fulness I implore. 

5 On thee alone my hope relies ; 
Beneath thy cross I fall ; 

My Lord, my life, my sacrifice, 
My Saviour, and my all !

COME, ye that love the Saviour's name, 
And joy to make it known, 
The So v' reign of your hearts proclaim. 
And bow before his throne. 

2 Behold your Lord, your Master, crown'd 
With glories all divine : 

And tell the wond'ring nations round, 
How bright those glories shine. 

3 When, in his earthly courts, we view 
The glories of our King, 

We long to love as angels do. 
And wish, like them, to sing. 

4 And shall we long and wish in vain? 
Lord, teach our songs to rise : 

Thy love can animate the strain. 
And bid it reach the skies.

Triumphant joy.- C M. 

MY Grod, the spring of all my joys, 
The life of my delights, 
The glory of my brightest days, 
And comfort of my nights : — 



2 In darkest shades, if thou appear, 
My dawning is begun ; 

Thou art my soul's bright morning star, 
And thou my rising sun. 

3 The opening heavens around me shine; 
With beams of sacred bliss, 

If Jesus shows his mercy mine. 
And whispers I am his. 

4 My soul would leave this heavy clay 
At that transporting word, 

Eun up with joy the shining way, 
To see and praise my Lord. 

5 Fearless of hell and ghastly death, 
I'd break through every foe ; 

The wings of love and arms of faith 
Would bear me conqu'ror through. 

04:7 Evening :— Solitude. C. M 

I LOVE to steal awhile away 
From every cumb'ring care. 
And spend the hours of setting day 
In humble, grateful prayer. 

2 I love in solitude to shed 
The penitential tear. 

And all his promises to plead 
Where none but Grod can hear. 

3 I love to think on mercies past, 
And future good implore, — 

And all my cares and sorrows cast 
On Him whom I adore. 

4 I love by faith to take a view 
Of brighter scenes in heaven ; 

The prospect doth my strength renew. 
While here by tempests driven. 

5 Thus, when life's toilsome day is o'er. 
May its departing ray 

Be calm as this impressive hour. 
And lead to endless day. 

246 The type of everlasting rest. C. M 

COME, let us join with one accord 
In hymns around the throne ; 
This is the day our rising Lord 
Hath made and call'd his own. 

2 This is the day which God hath blest. 
The brightest of the seven. 

Type of that everlasting rest 
The saints enjoy in heaven. 

3 Then let us in his name sing on. 
And hasten to that day 

When our Redeemer shall come down, 
And shadows pass away. 

4 Not one, but all our days below, 
Let us in hymns employ ; 

And, in our Lord rejoicing, go 
To his eternal joy.

And hate what we deplore.

True penitence impart : 

And let a healing ray from thee 
Beam peace into each heart. 

3 "When we disclose our wants in prayer, 
let our wills resign ; 

And not a thought our bosom share, 
Which is not Avholly thine. 

4 And when with heart and voice we strive I 
Our grateful hymns to raise, 

Let love divine within us live, 
And fill our souls with praise. 

5 Then, on thy glories while we dwell, 
Thy mercies we'll review ;

Thou, God, art Father too !

And let there now be light.

3 Angels, where'er we go, attend 
Our steps, whate'er betide ; 

With watchful care their charge defend. 
And evil turn aside. 

4 Our lives those holy angels keep 
From every hostile power ; 

And, unconcern' d, w^e sweetly sleep, 
As Adam in his bower.

On outstretch' d wings they bear, 

And lodge us in the arms divine, 
And leave us ever there.

The great and effectual door. C. M. 

JESUS, thou all-redeeming Lord, 
Thy blessing we implore ; 
Open the door to preach thy word, 
The great, effectual door. 

2 Gather the outcasts in, and save 
From sin and Satan's power ; 

And let them now acceptance have. 
And know their gracious hour. 

3 Lover of souls ! thou know'st to prize 
What thou hast bought so dear : 

Come, then, and in thy people's eyes 
With all thy wounds appear. 

4 Appear, as when of old confess'd, 
The suff 'ring Son of God ; 

And let us see thee in thy vest, 
Eut newly dipp'd in blood. 

5 The hardness of our hearts remove. 
Thou who for all hast died : 

Show us the tokens of thy love, 
Thy feet, thy hands, thy side. 

6 Ready thou art the blood to' apply, 
And prove the record true : 

And all thy wounds to sinners cry, 
I suffer'd this for you.

Delightful assurance. 



CM. 



SOV'REIGN of all the worlds on high. 
Allow my humble claim ; 
Nor while, unworthy, I draw nigh, 
Disdain a Father's name. 

3 ^ly Father, God I that gracious word 
Dispels my guilty fear ; 

Not all the notes by angels heard 
Could so delight my ear. 

4 Come, Holy Ghost, thyself impress 
On my expanding heart ; 

And show that in the Father's grace 
I share a fiUal part. 

5 Cheer'd by that witness from on high, 
Unwav'ring I believe ; 

And Abba, Father, humbly cry ; 



3 Perfect our souls in every grace, 
To' accomplish all his will ; 

And all that's pleasing in his sight 
Inspire us to fulfil. 

4 For the great Mediator's sake 
We every blessing pray ; 

With glory let his name be crown'd, 
Through heaven's eternal day. 

o4r Omniscience and omnipresence. C. M. 

FATHER of spirits, nature's God, 
Our thoughts are known to thee ; 
Thou, Lord, canst hear each idle word, 
And every action see. 

2 Could we, on morning's swiftest wings, 
Fly through the trackless air. 

Or dive beneath deep ocean's springs, 
Thy presence would be there. 

3 In vain may guilt attempt to fly, 
Conceal' d by darkest night ; 

One glance from thy all-piercing eye 
Can bring it all to light. 

. 4 Search thou our hearts, and there dc- 
Each secret bosom sin, [stroy 

And fit us f6r those realms of joy, 
That we mav enter in.

And reign with him in heaven.

The dross of sin remove ; 

Melt down my spirit. Lord, and mould 
Into thy perfect love.

THE glorious armies of the sky 
To thee, almighty King, 
Triumphant anthems consecrate, 
And hallelujahs sing. 

2 But still their most exalted flights 
Fall vastly short of thee ; 

How distant then must human praise 
From thy perfections be. 

3 Yet how, my God, shall I refrain, 
When, to my ravish'd sense. 

Each creature everywhere around 
Displays thy excellence ? 

4 Thy num'rous works exalt thee, Lord, 
Nor will [ silent be ; 

rather let me cease to breathe. 
Than cease from praising thee.

Where I may sing thy praise.

COME, let us join our friends above. 
That have obtain'd the prize ; 
And on the eagle wings of love 
To joys celestial rise.

With those to glory gone ; 

For all the servants of our King, 
In earth and heaven, are one. 

3 One family we dwell in Him, 
One church above, beneath, 

Though now divided by the stream, 
The narrow stream, of death. 

4 One army of the living God, 
To his command we bow ; 

Part of his host have crossed the flood. 
And part are crossing now. 

5 Ten thousand to their endless home 
This solemn moment fly ; 

And we are to the margin come, 
And we expect to die. 

6 His militant embodied host, 
With wishful looks we stand, 

And long to see that happy coast, 
And reach the heavenly land.

And all we need provide.

Till all our wand'rings cease, 

And at our Father's loved abode, 
Our souls arrive in peace.

FOUNTAIN of mercy, God of love, 
How rich thy bounties are! 
The rolling seasons, as they move, 
Proclaim thy constant care. 

2 "When in the bosom of the earth 
Tlie sower hid the grain, 

Thy goodness mark'd its secret birth, 
And sent the early rain. 

3 The spring's sweet influence, Lord, was 
The plants in beauty grew ; [thine ; 

Thou guv'st refulgent suns to shine, 
And the refreshing dew. 

4 Tiles'^ various mercies from above 
Matured the swelling gram; 

A kindly harvest crowns thy love, 
And plenty fills the plain. 

5 "We 0T\Ti and bless thy gracious sway ; 
Thy hand all nature hails : 

. Seed-time nor harvest, night nor day, 
Summer nor winter, fails. 



4 The Lord, the mighty God, thou art, 
But let me rather prove 

That name inspoken to my heart, 
That fav'rite name of Loveu 

5 Merciful God, thyself proclaim 
In this polluted breast ; 

Mercy is thy distinguish'd name, 
And suits the sinner best. 

6 Our mis'ry doth for pity call, 
Our sin implores thy grace ; 

And thou art merciful to all 
Our lost, apostate race.

But what might fill an angel's heart, 
And fiU'd a Saviour's hands. 

3 They watch for souls for which the Lord 
Did heavenly bliss forego ; 

For souls which must forever live 
In raptures, or in wo. 

4 May they in Jesus, whom they preach, 
Their own Redeemer see ; 

And watch thou daily o'er their souls, 
That they may watch for thee. 



HOW large the promise, how divine, 
To Abrah'm and his seed, — 

1 am a God to thee and thine, 

Supplying all their need. 

2 The words of his unbounded love 
From age to age endure ; 

The Angel of the Cov'nant proves 
And seals the blessing sure. 

3 Jesus the ancient faith confirms. 
To our great father given ; 

He takes our children to his arms, 
And calls them heirs of heaven. 

4 God, how faithful are thy ways ! 
Thy love endures the same; 

Nor from the promise of thy grace 
Blots out our children's name.

From their Redeemer's hands.

Amazing pity ! grace unknown I 
And love beyond degree ! 

3 Well might the sun in darkness hide, 
And shut his glories in, 

When Christ, the mighty Maker, died, 
For man, the creature's sin. 

4 Thus might I hide my blushing fece 
While his dear cross appears ; 

Dissolve my heart in thankfulness. 
And melt mine eyes to tears.

JESUS, to thy dear wounds we flee ; 
We shelter in thy side ; 
Assured that all who trust in thee 
Shall evermore abide. 

2 Then let the thund'ring trumpet sound; 
The latest hghtnings glare ; 

The mountains melt; the solid ground 
Dissolve as liquid air, 

3 The huge celestial bodies roll 
Amidst the gen'ral fire ; 

And shrivel as a parchment scroll, 
And all in smoke expire : — 

4 Yet still the Lord, the Saviour reigns, 
When nature is destroy'd ; ^ 

And no created thing remains 
Throughout the flaming void. 

5 Sublime on his eternal throne, 
He speaks the' almighty word : 

His fiat is obey'd • 'tis done; 
And paradise restored. 

6 So be it; let this system end; 
This ruinous earth and skies; 

The new Jerusalem descend, — 
The new creation rise. 

7 Thy power omnipotent assume ; 
Thy brightest majesty ; 

And when thou dost in glory come, 
My Lord, remember me.

The great and mighty Lord.

Justice shall guard his throne above. 
And peace abound below.

He bids me come as heretofore. 

That I his grace may have. 

3 I take thee at thy gracious word ; 
My foolishness I mourn ; 

And unto my redeeming Lord, 

However late, 1 turn :

I hear thy speaking blood ; 
Myself, with all my sins, I cast 

On my atoning Uod. 

Old Evening : Relying upon divine grace. C M. 

LORD, thou wilt hear me when I pray ; 
I am forever thine : 

1 fear before thee all the day. 
Nor would I dare to sin. 

2 And while I rest my weary head, \ 
From cares and business free, 

'Tis sweet, conversing on my bed 
With my own heart and thee. 

3 I pay this evening sacrifice ; 
And, when my work is done, 

Great God, my faith, my hope relies 
Upon thy grace alone. 

4 Thus, with my thoiights composed to 
I'll give mine eyes to sleep ; [peace, 

Thy hand in safety keeps my days, 
And will my slumbers keep.

1U»)4 Renewing the covenant. C. M. 

COME, let us use the grace divine, 
And all, with one accord, 
In a perpetual cov'nant join 

Ourselves to Christ the Lord ; — 

2 Give up ourselves, through Jesus' power, 
His Name to glorify ; 

And promise, in this sacred hour, 
For God to live and die. 

3 The cov'nant we this moment make 
Be ever kept m mmd ; 

We will no more our God forsake, 
Or cast his words behind. 

4 "We never will throw off his fear, 
Who hears our solemn vow ; 

And if thou art well pleased to hear. 
Come down, and meet us now, 

5 Thee, Father, Son, and Holy Ghost, 
Let all our hearts receive , 

Present with the celestial host, 
The peaceful answer give. 

, 6 To each, the cov'nant blood apply, 
Which takes our sins away ; 

And register our names on high, 
And keep us to that day. 

«. Q •' Sunday mornin g : Preparing for 

»),/0 public worship. C. M. 

LORD, in the morning thou shalt hear 
My voice ascending high : 
To thee will I direct my prayer, — 
To thee lift up mine eye : — 

2 Up to the hills where Christ is gone, 
To plead for all his saints ; 

Presenting, at the Father's throne, 
Our songs and our complaints. 

3 Thou art a God before whose sight 
The wicked shall not stand ; 

Sinners shall ne'er, be thy delight, 
Nor dwell at thy right hand, 

4 Now to thy house will I resort, 
To taste thy mercies there ; 

I will frequent thy holy court, 
And worship in thy fear. 

5 may thy Spirit guide my feet 
In ways of righteousness ; 

Make every path of duty straight, 
And plain before my face. 



Jt/ The Author of every good gift. 

■pATHER, to thee my soul I lift; 
J- My soul on thee depends ; 
Convinced that every perfect gift 
From thee alone descends. 

2 Mercy and grace are thine alone, 
And power and wisdom too ; 

Without the Spirit of thy Son, 
We nothing good can do. 



CM. 



3 We cannot spealc one useful word, 
One holy thought conceive. 

Unless, in answer to our Lord, 
Thyself the blessing give. 

4 His blood demands the purchased grace ; 
His blood's availing plea 

Obtamed the help for all our race, 
And sends it down to me, 

5 Thou all our works in us hast wrought • 
Our good is all divine : 

The praise of every virtuous thought, 
And righteous word, is thine. 

6 From thee, through Jesus, we receive 
The power on thee to call, 

In whom we are, and move, and Uve ; 
Our God is all in all. 

1^\ The joyful sound. CM. 

SALVATION ! the joyful sound ! 
What pleasure to our ears ; 
A sov'reign balm for every wound, 
A cordial for our fears, 

2 Salvation ! let the echo fly 
The spacious earth around, 

While all the armies of the sky 
Conspire to raise the sound. 

3 Salvation ! thou bleeding Lamb 1 
To thee the praise belongs : 

Salvation shall inspire our hearts. 
And dwell upon our tongues. 

Z It/ The ministered only business. C. W* 

JESUS, the Name high over all, 
In hell, or earth, or sky ; 
Angels and men before it fall. 
And devils fear and fly. 

2 Jesus, the Name to sinners dear, — 
The Name to sinners given ; 

It scatters all their guilty fear ; 
It turns their hell to heaven. 

3 Jesus the pris'ner's fetters breaks. 
And bruises Satan's head ; 

Power into strengthless souls he speaks, 
And life into the dead. 

4 that the world might taste and see 
The riches of his grace ; 

The arms of love that compass me. 
Would all mankind embrace. 

5 His only righteousness I show, — 
His saving truth proclaim : 

'Tis all my business here below. 
To cry, — Behold the Lamb I 

6 Happy, if with my latest breath 
I may but gasp his name ; 

Preach him to all, and cry in death, 
Behold, behold the Lamb I

Nor from thy bosom flee ; 

Let nothing here my heart divide ; 
I orive it all to thee.

Jesus, to thee I flee ; 

And to thy grace my soul resign, 
To be renew' d by thee.

Abide and reign within ;

Thine ear hath heard our prayer ; 

And graciously thine arm of power 
Hath saved us from despair.

Wilt keep thy promise still. 

If, meekly heark'ning to thy word, 
We seek to do thy wiU. 

4 Led by the light thy grace imparts, 
Ne'er may we bow the knee 

To idols, which our wayward hearts 
Set up instead of thee.

Gladly to earth their eyes they close, 
To open them in heaven.

And they are fully blest ; 

They fought the fight, the victVy won.

COME quickly, gracious Lord, and take 
Possession of thine own ;

In the Redeemer's breast.

I now the cross sustain, 

And gladly wander up and down, 
And smile at toil and pain : 

I suffer on my threescore years, 
Till my Deliv'rer come, 

And wipe away his servant's tears, 
And take his exile home.

Before my ravish'd eyes 

Rivers of life divine I see, 

And trees of Paradise : 
I see a world of spirits bright, 

Who taste the pleasures there ; 
• They all are robed in spotless white, * 

And conqu'ring palms they bear.

If, Lord, thou count me meet

That glows within my ravish'd heart? — 
But thou canst read it there. 

3 To all my weak complaints and cries, 
Thy mercy It-nt an ear, 

Ere yet my feeble thoughts had learn'd 
To form themselves in prayer.

With heedless steps, I ran ; 

Thine arm, unseen, convey'd me safe 
And led me up to man.

Those crowns which Jesus gave, — 

And, with ten thousand thousand tongm.'S, 
Proclaim his power to save.

The suff'rings which he bore ; 

How low he stoop'd, how high he rose, —

And never-with'ring flowers : 

Death, like a narrow sea, divides 
This heavenly land from ours.

Stand dress'd in living green ; 

So to the Jews old Canaan stood,

Of every sinner's heart : 

The worst need keep him out no more, 
Or force him to depart. 

3 Through grace we hearken to thy voioi', 
Yield to be saved from sin ; 

In sure in certain hope rejoice, 
That thou wilt enter in.

Nor ever hence remove ; 

But sup with us, and let the feast 
Be everlasting love.

And on the wings of every hour 

We read thy patience still.

To save rebelhous worms, 

Where vengeance and compassion join 
In their divinest forms *

Nor dares a creature guess 

Which of the glories brighter shone,

Adorn the heavenly plains ,

And try their choicest strams.

()() All His works praise Him. C. M. 

THERE seems a voice in every gale, 
A tongue in every flower, 
Which tells, Lord, the wondrous tale 

Of thy almighty power ; 
The birds, that rise on quiv'ring wing, 

Proclaim their Maker's praise, 
And all the mingling sounds of spring 

To thee an anthem raise. 
2 Shall I be mute, great God, alone 

'Midst nature's loud acclaim ? 
Shall not my heart, with answ'ring tone, 

Breathe forth thy holy name ? 
All nature's debt is small to mine, 

Nature shall cease to be ; 
Thou gavest — proof of love divine — 

Immortal life to me. 

937 Ihe land of rest 36th P. M. 86,886. 

THERE is an hour of peaceful rest, 
To mourning wand'rers given ; 
There is a joy for souls distress'd, 
A balm for every wounded breast,- 
'Tis found above in heaven. 

2 There is a home for weary souls 
By sin and sorrow driven, 

When toss'd on life's tempestuous shoals. 
Where storms arise and ocean rolls, 
And all is drear but heaven. 

3 There faith lifts up the. tearless eye, 
To brighter prospects given ; 

And views the tempest passing by, 
The evening shadows quickly fly, 
And all serene in heaven. 

4 There fragrant flowers immortal bloom, 
And joys supreme are given ;

Beyond the confines of the tomb

lOlo Deprecating the anger of God. CM. 

BEHOLD, Lord ! before thy throne 
Thy mourning people bend : 
'Tis on thy sov'reign grace alone 
Our humble hopes depend. 

2 Tremendous judgments from thy hand 
Thy dreadful power display ; 

Yet mercy spares this guilty land. 
And yet we Uve to pray. 

3 And why, great God, are we thus 
Ungrateful as we are ? [spared, 

O make thine awful warnings heard, 
While mercy cries, — Forbear! 

4 turn us, turn us, blessed Lord, 
By thine almighty grace ; 

Then shall our hearts obey thy word, 
And ever seek thy face. 

5 Hear thou our prayers, and grant us aid ; 
Bid wars forever cease : 

Heal every breach that sin has made, 
And bless our land with peace. 



i J7 Vanity of earthly enjoyments. C. M. 

HOW vain are all things here below ; 
How false, and yet how fair ! 
Each pleasure hath its poison too, 
And every sweet a snare. 

2 The brightest things below the sky 
Give but a flatt'ring light ; 

We should suspect some danger nigh, 
Where we possess delight. 

3 Our dearest joys and nearest friends, 
The partners of our blood. 

How they divide our wav'ring minds, 
And leave but half Ibr God. 

4 The fondness of a creature's love, 
How strong it strikes the sense ; 

Thither the warm affections move, 
Nor can we call them thence. 

5 My Saviour, let thy beauties be 
My soul's eternal food ; 

And grace command my heart away 
From all created good. 

359 27ie resolution. C, M. 

COME, humble sinner, in whose breast 
A thousand thoughts revolve, 
Come, w^th your guilt and fear oppress'd, 
And make this last resolve : — 

2 I'll go to Jesus, though my sin 
Like mountains round me close ; 

I know his courts, I'll enter in. 
Whatever may oppose. 

3 Prostrate I'll lie before his throne, 
And there my guilt confess ; 

I'll tell him, I'm a wretch undone 
Without his sov'reign grace. 

4 Perhaps he will admit my plea, 
Perhaps will hear my praj'^er; 

But, if I perish, I will pray, 
And perish only there. 

5 I can but perish if I go — 
I am resolved to try ; 

For if I stay away, I know 
I must forever die. 



OuO I would he thine. C St 

I WOULD be thine ; O take my ^eart, 
And fill it with thy love ; 
Thy sacred image. Lord, impart, 
A nd seal it from above. 

2 I would be thine ; but while I strive 
To give myself away, 

I feel rebellion still alive. 
And wander while I pray. 

3 I would be thine ; but, Lord, I feel 
Evil still lurks within : — 

Do thou thy majesty reveal, 
And overcome my sin. 

4 I would be thine ; I would embrace 
The Saviour, and adore ; 

Inspire with faith, infuse thy grace, 
And now my soul restore

Unmerited and free, 
Delights our evil to remove, 
And help our misery.

Thou dost with sinners bear ; 

That, saved, we may thy goodness feel, 
And all thy gi'ace declare. 

3 Thy goodness and thy truth to me, 
To every soul, abound ; 

A vast, unfathomable sea, 

Where all our thoughts are drown'd. 

4 Its streams the whole creation reach, 
So plenteous is the store ; 

Enouirh for all, enough for each, 
Enough forever more. 

5 Faithful, Lord, thy mercies are, — 
A rock that cannot move : 

A thousand promises declare 
Thy constancy of love.

Unalterably sure ; 

And while the truth of God remains,

And let us always kindly think, 
And sweetly speak, the same.

Eternally shall last.

But loving Mary's heart. 

2 Though careful, without care I am, 
Nor feel my happy toil, — 

Preserved in peace by Jesus' Name, 

Supported by his smile : 
Rejoicing thus my faith to show, 

Ilis service my reward ; 
While every work I do below, 

I do it to the Lord.

Of living thus to thee ; 

And find their heaven begun below, 

And here thy glory see ; 
Walking in all the works prepared 

To exercise their grace. 
They gain at last their full reward, 

And see thy glorious face.

Wisdom and might, and earth and heaven. 
And all therein, are thine.

Who dost thy right maintain, 

And, high on thy eternal throne, 
O'er men and angels reign. 

4 Riches, as seemeth good to thee, 
Thou dost, and honour give ; 

And kings their power and dignity 
Out of thy hand receive. 

5 Thou hast on us the grace bestow'd, 
Thy greatness to proclaim ; 

And therefore now we thank our God, 
And praise thy glorious Name. 

6 Thy glorious Name, thy nature's powers, 
Thou dost to us make known ; 

And all the Deity is ours. 
Through thy incarnate Son.

It all reflects thy light : 

For this the planets ceaseless roll, 
And day succeeds the night. 

3 For this the earth its produce yields ; 
For this the waters flow ; 

And blooming plants adorn the fields, 
And trees and herbage grow.

This wise and noble end. 

That all we think, or say, or do.

And chains you to the shore.

Without his high behest. 

Ye shall not in the mountain-pine. 
Disturb t!ie sparrow's nest.

In distant peals it dies ; 

He yokes the whirlwind to his car, 
And sweeps the howling skies.

And let unceasing praise ascend

And in thy Name we part. 

3 We part in body^ not in mind ; 
Our minds continue one ; 

And each to each in Jesus join'd. 
We hand m hand go on. 

4 Subsist as in us all one soul ; 
No power can make us twain , 

And mountains rise, and oceans roll, 
To sever us in vain. 

5 Present we still in spirit are, 
And intimately nigh ; 

While on the wings of faith and prayer 
We to each other' fly,

And shed his glory all abroad 
On all his members here.

In a vile house of clay ; 
But Christ will to the utmost save, 
And keep us to that day. 

2 Our souls are in his mighty hand, 
And he shall keep them still ; 

And you and I shall surely stand 
With him on Zion's hill. 

3 Him eye to eye we there shall see ; 
Our face like his shall shine : 

what a glorious company, 
When saints and angels join ! 

4 what a joyful meeting there 1 
In robes of white array'd, 

Palms in our hands we all shall bear, 
And crowns upon our head. 

5 Then let us lawfully contend, 
And fight our passage through ; 

Bear in o>ir faithful minds the end, 
And keep the prize in view.

Still may we dwell secure ; 

Sufficient is thine arm alone,

Or earth received her frame.

To endless years the same. 

4 A thousand ages, in thy sight, 
Are hke an evening gone; 

Short as the watch that ends the night. 
Before the rising sun.

Bears all its sons away ; 

They fly, forgotten, as a dream 
Dies at the opening day. 

6 The busy tribes of flesh and blood. 
With all their cares and fears, 

Are carried downward by the flood, 
And lost in foll'wing years.

Be thou our guide while life shall last, 
And our perpetual home !

|N Jordan's stormy banks I stand, 
And cast a wishful eye 
To Canaan's fair and happy land, 
Where my possessions he. 

2 O the transporting, rapturous scene, 
That rises to my sight I — 

Sweet fields, arrayed in living green, 
And rivers of delight. 

3 There generous fruits that never fail. 
On trees immortal grow ; 

There rock, and hill, and brook, and vale, 
With milk and honey flow. 

4 O'er all those wide-extended plains 
Shmes one eternal day , 

There G-od the Son forever reigns. 
And scatters night away. 

5 No chilling winds, nor poisonous breath, 
Can reach that healthful shore ; 

Sickness and sorrow, pain and death. 
Are felt and feared no more. 

6 When shall I reach that happy place. 
And be forever blest ? 

When shall I see my Father's face, 
And in his bosom rest ? 

7 Filled with delight, ray raptured soul 
Would here no longer stay ; 

Though Jordan's waves around me roll, 
Fearless I'd launch away.

WANT a principle within, 

Of jealous, godly fear ; 
A sensibility of sin, — 

A pain to feel it near : 
[ want the first approach to feel. 

Of pride, or fond desire ; 
To catch the wand'ring of my will, 

And quench the kindling fire. 

2 From thee that I no more may part, 
No more thy goodness grieve. 

The filial awe, the fleshly heart. 
The tender conscience, give. 

Quick as the apple of an eye, 
God, my conscience make ; 

Awake my soul when sin is nigh. 
And keep it still awake. 

3 If to the right or left I stray, 
That moment. Lord, reprove ; 

And let me weep my life away, 
For having grieved thy love. 

may the least omission pain 
My well-instructed, soul. 

And drive me to the blood again. 
Which makes the wounded whole.

My hope is full, (0 glorious hope !)

4 With me, I know, I feel, thou art ; 
But this cannot sufiice. 

Unless thou plantest in my heart 
A constant paradise. 

5 My earth thou wat'rest from on high, 
But make it all a pool : 

Spring up, Well, I ever cry ; 
Spring up within my soul. 

6 Come, my God, thyself reveal; 
Fill all this mighty void : 

Thou only canst my spirit fill ; 
Come, my God, my God.

J- No other help I know : 
If thou withdraw thyself from me, 
Ah ! whither shall I go ? 

2 What did thine only Son endure. 
Before I drew my breath I 

What pain, what labour, to secure 
My soul from endless death ! 

3 Jesus, could I this believe, 
I now should feel thy power ; 

And all my wants thou wouldst relieve, 
In this accepted hour. 

4 Author of faith ! to thee I lift 
My weary, longing eyes : 

let me now receive that gift, — 
My soul without it dies. 

5 Surely thou canst not let me die ; 
O speak, and I shall live ; 

And here I will unwearied lie, 
Till thou thy Spirit give. 

6 How would my fainting soul rejoice, 
Could I but see thy face ; 

Now let me hear thy qnick'ning voice, 
And taste thy pard'ning grace.

Radiant Jiope. 



C. M. 



OWHO, in such a world as this, 
Could bear his lot of pain, 
Did not one radiaiit hope of bliss 

Unclouded yet remain ? 
That hope the sov'reign Lord has given, 

Who reigns above the skies ; 
Hope that unites the soul to heaven 
By faith's enduring ties. 

2 Each care, each ill of mortal birth. 

Is sent in pitying love, 
To lift the ling'ring heart from earth, 

And speed its flight above. 
And every pang that wrings the breast, 

And every joy that dies, 
Tell us to seek a purer rest, 

And trust to hoher ties.

For the coming of Christ 8 kingdom. C. M. 



FATHER of me and all mankind. 
And all the hosts above, 
Let every understanding mind 
Unite to praise thy love. 

2 To know thy nature and thy name. 
One God in persons Three ; 

And glorify the great I AM 
Through all eternity. 

3 Thy kingdom come, with power and grace 
To every heart of man ; 

Thy peace, and joy, and righteousness, 
In all our bosoms reign. 

4 The righteousness that never ends. 
But makes an end of sin — 

The joy that human thought transcends — 
Into our souls brin*? in.

Praise and thanksgiving.

OING to the great Jehovali':? praise ; 
^ All praise to him belongs ; 
Who kindly lengthens out our days, 

Demands our choicest songs : 
Ilis providence hath brought us through 

Another various year ; 
We all, with vows and anthems new, 

Before our God appear. 

2 Father, thy mercies past we own, — 

Thy still continued care, — 
To thee presenting, through thy Son, 

Whate'er we have or are : 
Our lips and lives shall gladly show 

The wonders of thy love ; 
While on in Jesus' steps we go 

To seek thy face above. 

.3 Our residue of days or hours 
Thine, wholly thine, shall be ; 

And all our consecrated powers 
A sacrifice to thee, — 



Till Jesus in tlie clouds appear, 
To saints on earth forgiven. 

And bring the grand Sabbatic year, 
The jubilee of heaven.

C^ OD of all grace and majesty, 
VT Supiemely great and good, 
If I have mercy found with thee 

Through the atoning blood ; 
The guard of all thy mercies give, 

And to my pardon join 
A fear lest I should ever grieve 

The Comforter divine. 

2 If mercy is indeed with the^ 
May I obedient prove, 

Nor e'er abuse my liberty, 

Or sin against thy love : 
This choicest fruit of faith bestow 

On a poor sojourner ; 
And let me pass my days below 

In humbleness and fear. 

3 Still may I walk as in thy sight | 
My strict observer see ; 

And thou, by rev'rent love, unite 
My child-hke heart to thee : 

Still let me, till my days are past, 
At Jesus' feet abide : 

So shall he lift me up at last. 
And seat me by his side.

Lamenting spiritual sloth. 



CM. 



MY drowsy powers, why sleep ye so ? 
Awake, my sluggish soul : 
Nothing hath half thy work to do, 
Yet nothing's half so dull. 

2 Go to the ants ! for one poor grain 
See how they toil and strive ; 

Yet we who have a heaven to' obtain, 
How negligent we live ! — 

3 We, for whose sake all nature stands, 
And stars their courses move , 

We, for whose guard the angel bands 
Come flying from above : — 

4 We, for whom God the Son came dowa 
And labour'd for our good ; 

How careless to secure that crown 
He purchased with his blood ! 

5 Lord, shall we live so sluggish still, 
And never act our parts ? 

Come, holy Dove, from the" heavenly hili, 
And warm our frozen hearts 1 

6 Give us with active warmth to move, 
With vig'rous souls to rise ; 

With hands of faith, and wings of love. 
To fly and take the prize.

Wlien I begin thy praise, 
Where will the growing numbers end, — 
The numbers of thy grace ?

Thy goodness I adore : 

Send down thy grace, blessed Lord, 
That I may love thee more.

Of the celestial road ; 

And march, with couiage in thy strength, 
To see the Lord my God.

With this delightful song ; 

And entertain the darkest hours, 
Nor think the season long. 

296 Vie precious Name. CM. 

HOW sweet the name of Jesus sounds 
In a believer's ear ; 
It soothes his sorrows, heals his wounds, 
And drives away his fear. 

2 It makes the wounded spirit whole, 
And calms the troubled breast ; 

'Tis manna to the hungry soul, 
And to the weary, rest. 

3 Dear Xame, the rock on which I build, 
My shield and hiding-place ; 

My never-failing treasure, fiU'd 
With boundless stores of grace ; 

4 Jesus, my Shepherd, Saviour, Friend, 
My Prophet, Priest, and King, 

My Lord, my Life, my Way, my End, 
Accept the praise I bring. 

5 I would thy boundless love proclaim. 
With every fleeting breath ; 

So shall the music of thy name 
Refresh my soul m death.

No fearful shade shall wear ;

For Christ hath conquer'd there.

For God. by grace, shall dwell in thee, 
And God himself is h<dit.

VAIN man, thy fond pursuits forbear; 
Repent, tliiue end is nigh ; 
Death, at the farthest, can't be far : 
think before thou die. 

2 Reflect, thou hast a soul to save ; 
Thy sins, how high they mount ! 

What are thy hopes beyond the grave ? 
How stands that dark account ? 

3 Death enters, and there's no defence ; 
His time there's none can tell ; 

He'll in a moment call thee hence 
To heaven, or down to hell. 

4 Thy flesh (perhaps thy greatest care) 
Shall into dust consume ; 

But, ah ! destruction stops not there ; 
Sin kills beyond the tomb. 

554 The Lord's Prayer. C. M. 

OUR Father, God, who art in heaven, 
All hallow' d be thy name ; 
Thy kingdom come ; thy will be done 
In heaven and earth the same.

And as we those forgive 

"Who sm against us, so may we 
Forgiving grace receive.

Here would I rest till light returns : 
Thy presence makes my day.

And greet the blood-besprinkled bands 
On the eternal shore. 

3 Our spirits too shall quickly join, 
Like theirs with glory crown'd, 

And shout to see our Captain's sign, 
To hear his trumpet sound.

And, when the word is given, 

Bid death's cold flood its waves divide, 
And land us safe in heaven.

SWEET is the prayer whose holy stream 
In earnest pleading flows; 
Djvotiou dwells upon the theme, 
And warui and warmer glows. 

2 Faith grasps the blessing she desires ; 
Hope points the upward gaze ; 

And Love, celestial Love, inspires 
The eloquence of praise. 

3 But sweeter far the still small voice. 
Unheard by human ear, 

When God has made the heart rejoice. 
And dried the bitter tear. 

4 No accents flow, no words ascend; 
All utt' ranee foileth there ; 

But God himself doth comprehend, 
And answer, silent prayer.

134 He died for thee. CM. 

BEHOLD the Saviour of mankind 
Nail'd to the shameful tree ; 
How vast the love that him incUned 
To bleed and die for thee ! 

2 Hark! how he groans, while nature shakes, 
And earth's strong pillars bend • 

The temple's veil in sunder breaks, — 
The solid marbles rend. 

3 'Tis done ! the precious ransom's paid 1 
Receive my soul ! he cries : 

See where he bows his sacred head ; 
He bows his head, and dies. 

4 But soon he'll break death's envious chain, 
And in full glory shine : 

Lamb of God, was ever pain, 
Was ever love, like thine ? 

loO Paradise opened. CM. 

THE Sun of righteousness appears, 
To set in blood no more ; 
Adore the Scatt'rer of your fears, — 
Your rising Sun adore. 

2 The saints, when he resign'd his breath, 
Unclosed their sleeping eyes ; 

He breaks again the bands of death, — 
Again the dead arise. 

3 Alone the dreadful race he ran, — 
Alone the wine-press trod , 

He dies and suflfers as a man, — 
He rises as a God. 

4 In vain the stone, the watch, the seal, 
Forbid an early rise 

To Him, who breaks the gates of hell, 
Aud opens Paradise. 

Z'.y Invoking God''s presence and hlessitig. CM. 

¥ITHIN thy house, Lord our God, 
In majesty appear ; 
Make this a place of thine abode, 
And shed thy blessings here. 

2 As we thy mercy-scat surround. 
Thy Spirit, Lord, impart ; 

And let thy Gospel's joyful sound 
With power reach every heart 

3 Here let the blind their sight obtain ; 
Here give the mourner rest ; 

Let Jesus here triumphant reign, 
Enthroned in every breast. 

4 Here let the voice of sacred joy 
And fervent prayer arise, 

Till higher strains our tongues employ, 
In bliss beyond the skies. 

.>.)w BoaH not thyself of to-morrow. CM. 

WHY should we boast of time to come, 
Though but a single day ? 
This hour may fix our final doom. 
Though strong, and young, and gay. 



2 The present we should now redeem ; 
This only is our own ; 

The past, alas ! is all a dream ; 
The future is unknown. 

3 0, think what vast concerns depend 
Upon a moment's space, 

When life and all its cares shall end 
In vengeance or in grace ! 

4 for that power which melts the heart, 
And lifts the soul on high, 

Where sin, and grief, and death depart, 
And pleasures never die. 

5 There we with ecstasy shall fall 
Before Immanuel's feet ; 

And hail him as our All in all. 
In happiness complete. 

1 i\) Our ever-present Guide. C M. 

JESUS, the Lord of glory, died, 
That we might never die ; 
And now he reigns supreme, to guide 
His people to the sky. 

2 Weak though we are, he still is near. 
To lead, console, defend ; 

In all our sorrow, all our fear, 
Our all-sufficient Friend. 

3 From his high throne in bliss, he deigns 
Our every prayer to heed ; 

Bears with our folly, soothes our pains, 
Supplies our every need. 

4 And from his love's exhaustless spring, 
Joys like a river come, 

To make the desert bloom and sing, 
O'er Avhich we travel home. 

5 Jesus, there is none like thee, 
Our Saviour ^.nd our Lord ; 

Through earth and heaven exalted be. 
Beloved, obey'd, adored. 

136 ^<« crucifixion. C M. 

FROM whence these direlul omens round, 
Which heaven and earth amaze ? 
And why do earthquakes cleave the ground ? 
Why hides the sun his rays ? 

2 Well may the earth, astomsh'd, shake. 
And nature sympathize, — 

The sun, as darkest night, be black ; 
Their Maker, Jesus, dies ! 

3 Behold, fast streaming from the tree, 
His all-atoning blood : 

Is tiiis the Infinite ? 'tis he, — 
My Saviour and my God. 

4 For me these pangs his soul assail i 
For me this death is borne , 

My sins gave sharpness to the naU» 
And pointed every thorn. 

5 Let sin no more my soul enslave ; 
Break, Lord, its tyrant chain , 

0, save me, whom thou cam'st to save, ' 
Nor bleed nor die in vain.

You live, devoid of peace , 

A thousand stings within your breast 
Deprive your souls of ease.

Why will you persevere ? 

Can you in endless torments dwell. 
Shut up in black despair ? 



4 Why will you in the crooked ways 
Of sin and folly go? 

In pain you travel all your days, 
To reach eternal wo,

Through his abounding grace ; 

His mercy will the guilt forgive 
Of those that seek his face.

Submit to him, your sov'reign Lord, 
And learn his will divine.

Shed forth the virtue of thy Name, 
And Jesus prove to me.

For thou that faith hast given ; 

Thou canst, thou wilt, the sinner save, 
And make me meet for heaven.

Were I among them, my glad tongue 
Might learn new themes of praise. 

3 For thou art in their midst to teach, 
When on thy Name they call ; 

And thou hast blessings, Lord, for each, — 
Hast blessings, Lord, for all.

Yet here thou surely art ;

G Thy blood shall over all prevail, 

And sanctify the unclean ; 
The grace that saves the soul from hell, 

Will save from present sin. 

.>UO Timtli/ penitence. CM. 

¥HEN rising from the bed of death, 
O'er whelm 'd with guilt and fear, 

1 view my Maker face to face, — 
how shall 1 appear? 

2 If yet, while pardon may be found, 
And meicy may be sought, 

My soul with inward horror shrinks. 
And trembles at the thought : — 

3 When thou, Lord, shalt stand ilisclosed 
In majesty severe, 

And sit in judgment on my soul, — 
how shall I appear? 

4 may my broken, contrite heart, 
Timely my sins lament ; 

And early, with repentant tears, 
Eternal woe prevent. 



5 Behold the sorrows of my heart 

Ere yet it be too late , 
And hear my Saviour s dying groan, 

To give those sorrows weight. 

G For never shall my soul despair 

Uer pardon to secure. 
Who knows thine only Son liath died 

To make that pardon sure 

00< Warnings from the grave. (.' M. 

BENEATH our feet, and o'er our head, 
Is equal warning given , 
Beneath us lie the countless dead, — 
Above us is the heaven. 

2 Death rides on every passing breeze, 
And lurks in every tlower ^ 

Each season hath its own disease,-— 
Its peril every hour. 

3 Our eyes have seen the rosy light 
Of youth's soft cheek decay, 

And late descend in sudden night 
On manhood's middle day. 

4 Our eyes have seen the steps of age 
Halt feebly to the tomb ; 

And shall earth still our hearts engage, 
And dreams of days to come ? 

5 Turn, mortal, turn ; thy danger know ; 
Where'er thy foot can tread, 

The earth rings hollow fiom below, 
And warns thee by "lier dead. 

6 Turn, mortal, turn ; thy soul ajjply 
To truths divinely given : 

The dead who underneath thee he, 
Shall live for hell or heaven. 

339 Fear of hell. C. M. 

TERRIBLE thought ! shall I alone, 
Who may be saved, shall I, 
Ui' all, alas ! whom 1 have known, 
T'hrough sin forever die ? 

2 While all my old companions dear, 
With whom I once did live, 

Joyful at God's right hand appear, 
A blessing to receive • — 

3 Shall I, amidst a ghastly band, 
Dragg'd to the judgment-seat, 

Far on the left with horror stand, 
My fearful doom to meet ? 

4 Ah I no ; — I still may turn and live, 
For still his wrath delays; 

He now vouchsafes a kind reprieve. 
And olTers me his grace. 

5 I will accept his offers now — 
From every sin depart — 

Perform my oft-repeated vow. 
And render him my heart. 

G I will improve what I receive, 
The grace through Jesus given ; 

Sure, if with God on earth I live, 
To live with God in heaven.

oG6 On earth as it is in heaven. (.-. M. 

JESUS, tlie Life, the Truth, the Way, 
In whom I now beheve, 
As taught by thee, in faith I pray, 
Expecting to receive. 

2 Thy will by me on earth bo done, 
As by the powers above, 

Who always see thee on tiiy throne, 
And glory m thy love. 

3 I ask in confidence the grace, 
That I may do thy will, 

As angels, who behold thy face, 
And all thy words fulfil. 

4 Surely I .shall, the sinner I, 
Shall serve thee without fear, 

If thou my nature sanctiiy 
In answer to my prayer. 

240 The day iynprcyted- C. M. 

THIS day the Lord hath calfd his owti , 
Let us his praise declare, 
Fix our desires on him alone, 
And seek his face with prayer. 

2 Lord, in thy love we would rejoice, 
Which sets the sinner free, 

And, with united neart and voice, 
Devote these hours to thee. 

3 Now let the world's delusive things 
No more our thoughts employ 

But faith be taught to stretch her wings, 
Tow'rd heaven's unfailing joy. 

4 let these earthly Sabbaths, Lord, 
Be to our welfare blest ; 

The purest comfort here afiford, 
And lit us for our rest. 

i I ///■"( greatness and condescension. C M. 

OLORD, our King, liow excellent 
Tiiy name on earth is known, 
Thy glory m the firmament, 
lIow wonderfully shown I 

2 When I behold the heavens on high, 
The work of thy right hand , 

The moon and stars amid the sky, 
Thy lights in every land : — 

3 Lord ! what is man that thou shouldst 
On hiin to set thy love, [Jeign 

Give liiin on earth awhile to reign. 
Then fill a throne above ? 

4 Lord, how excellent thy name ; 
How manifold thy ways I 

Let time thy saving truth proclaim, 
ELernity thy praise. 



Jk)\} The earth renewed in righteousness. 

ALMIGHTY Spirit, now behold 
A w^orld by sin destroy'd : 
Creating Spirit, as of old. 
Move on the formless void. 



C. M. 



2 Give thou the word , that healing sound 
Shall quell the deadly strife ; 

And earth again, like Eden crown'd, 
Bring forth the tree of lite. 

3 If sang the morning stars for joy, 
When nature rose to view. 

What strains will angel-harps employ, 
When thou shalt all renew ? 

4 And if the sons of God rejoice 
To hear a Saviour's name. 

How will the ransom'd raise their voice, 
To whom the Saviour came ? 

5 Lo, every kindred, every tribe, 
Assembhng round the throne. 

The new creation shall ascribe 
To sov'reign love alone. 

Uol Perfection of the laic and tesiimomj. C. M. 

THY law is perfect, Lord of light \ 
Thy testimonies sure , 
J^he statutes of thy realm are right, 
And thy commandment pure. 

2 Let these, God, my soul convert, 
And make thy servant wise ; 

Let these be gladness to my ears, — 
The dayspring to mine eyes. 

3 By these may I be w^arn'd betimes ; 
Who knows the guile within ? 

Lord, save me from presumptuous crimes ; 
Cleanse me from secret sin. 

4 So may the words my lips express, — 
The thougiits that throng my mind, — 

O Lord, my strength and righteousness, 
With thee acceptance find, 

^— rv TJie shadow of a great rock in a weary 

il\J land. CM. 

]^0 W to the haven of thy breast, 
1^ Son of man, I fly , 
Be thou my refuge and my rest, 
For ! ' the storm is high. 

2 Protect me from the furious blast ; 
My shield and shelter be • 

Hide me, my Saviour, till o'erpast 
The storm of sin I see. 

3 As welcome as the water-spring 
Is to a barren [)lace, 

Jesus, descend on me, and bring 
Thy sweet, refreshing grace. 

4 As o'er a parch 'd and weary land, 
A rock extends its shade. 

So hide me. Saviour, with thy hand, 
And screen my naked head. 

5 In all the times of my distress 
Thou hast my succour been ; 

And in my utter helplessness, 
Restraining me from sin ; 

6 How swifl to save me didst thou move 
In every trying hour ; 

still protect me with thy love, 
And shield me with thy power.

103 One God in ^ree persons. CM. 

HAIL, Father, Son, and Holy Ghost, 
One God in pereons three ; 
Of thee we make our joyful boast, 
And homage pay to thee. 

2 Present alike in every place. 
Thy Godhead we adore : 

Beyond the bounds of time and space 
Thoa dwellest evermore. 

3 In wisdom infinite thou art. 
Thine eye doth all things see ; 

And every thought of every heart 
Is fully known to thee. 

4 Thou lov'st whate'er thy hands have made ; 
Thy goodness we rehearse, 

In shining characters display 'd 
Throughout the universe. 

5 Wherefore let every creature give 
To thee the praise design'd; 

But chiefly, Lord, the thanks receive, — 
The hearts, of all mankind. 

168 77^6 Way, the Truth, aiid the Life. C. M. 

THOU art the Way : to thee alone. 
From sin and death we flee; 
And he who would the Father seek, 
Must seek him, Lord, by thee. 

2 Thou art the Truth : thy word alone 
True wisdom can impart ; 

Thou only canst inform the mind, 
And purify the heart. 

3 Thou art the Life : the rending tomb. 
Proclaims thy conqu'ring arm ; 

And those who put their trust in thee 
Nor death nor hell shall harm. 

4 Thou art the Way— the Truth— the Life ; 
Grant us that way to know — 

That truth to keep — that life to win — 
Whose joys eternal flow. 

4Uu Pleading Eis gracioiia name. CM. 

LORD, I approach the mercy-seat, 
Where thou dost answer prayer ; 
There humbly fall before thy feet, — 
For none can perish there. 

2 Thy promise is my only plea ; 
With this I venture nigh ; 

Thou callest burden'd souls to thee, 
And such, Lord, am I. 

3 Bow'd down beneath a load of sin. 
By Satan sorely press'd ; 

By wars without, and fears within, 
I come to thee for rest 

4 Be thou my shield and hiding-place ; 
That, shelter' d near thy side, 

I may rejoice in Jesus' grace, — 
In Jesus crucified- 

5 0, wondrous love ! — to bleed and die. 
To bear the cross and shame. 

That guilty sinners, such as I, 
Might plead thy gracious name. 



oZi The voice that icakes the dead. C. M. 

THOU Son of God, whose flaming eyes 
Our inmost thoughts perceive, 
Accept the grateful sacrifice 
Which now to thee we give. 

2 We bow before thy gracious throne 
And think ourselves sincere : 

But show us, Lord, is every one 
Thy real worshipper? 

3 Is here a soul that knows thee not, 
Nor feels his need of thee, — 

A stranger to the blood which bought 
His pardon on the tree ? 

4 Convince him now of unbelief; 
His desp'rate state explain ; 

And fill his heart with sacred grief, 
And penitential pain. 

5 Speak, with that voice that wakes the dead, > 
And bid the sleeper rise ; 

And bid his guilty conscience dread 
The death that never dies. 

439 Victorious faith. Q. M. 

IN hope, against all human hope, 
Self-desp'rate, I believe, — 
Thy quick'ning word shall raise me up 
Thou wilt thy Spirit give. 

2 The thing surpasses all my thought; 
But faitliful is my Lord ; 

Through unbelief I stagger not, 
For God hath spoke the word. 

3 Faith, mighty faith, the promise seea^ 
And looks to that alone ; 

Laughs at impossibilities. 

And cries, — It shall be done ! 

4 To thee the glory of thy power 
And faitlifulness I give ; 

1 shall in Christ, at that glad hour. 

And Christ in me shall live. 

5 Obedient faith, that waits on thee. 
Thou never wilt reprove ; 

But thou wilt form thy Son in me 
And perfect me in love. 

lUo4 Deeds of charity. C. IJ 

HIGH on a throne of light, Lord, 
Dost thou exalted shine : 
What can our poverty bestow, 
Since all the world is tliine ? 

2 But thou hast brethren here below, 
Partakers of thy grace. 

Whose humble names thou wilt confess 
Before thy Father's face. 

3 In them may'st thou be clothed and fed. 
And visited and cheer'd ; 

And, in their accents of distress, 
The Saviour's voice be heard. 

4 Whate'er our willmg hands can give, 
Lord, at thy feet we lay ; 

Grace will the humble gift receive 
And grace at length repay.

i Joining the song of the Church triumphant. C. M. 

SING we the song of those who stand 
Around the' eternal throne, 
Of every kindred, cUme, and land, — 

A multitude unknown. 
2 Life's poor distinctions vanish here ; 

To-day the young, the old, 
Our Saviour and his flock, appear, 

One shepherd and one fold, 
o Toil, trial, suff'ring, still await 

On earth the pilgrim throng ; 
Yet learn we m our low estate 

The Cnurch triumphant's song. 

4 Worthy the Laaib for sinners slain, 
Cry the redeem'd above, 

Blessing and honour to obtain. 
And everlasting love> 

5 Worthy the Lamb, on earth we sing, 
Who died our souls to save ; 

Henceforth, Death, where is thy sting? 

Thy victory, Grave ? 
G Then hallehijuh ! power and praise 

To God in Christ be given ; 
May all wlio now this anthem raise, 

Renew the song m heaven. 

O'i/1 The universal bond of love. C. M. 

THE glorious universe around, 
The heavens with all their train, 
ttun, moon, and stars, are firmly bound 
In one mysterious chain. 

2 The earth, the ocean, and tlie sky, 
To form one world agree ; 

Wiiere all that walk, or swjm, or fly. 
Compose one lamily 

3 God in creation thus displays 
His wisdom and his might, 

AVhile all his works with all his ways 
Harmoniously unite. 

4 In one fraternal bond of love, 
One fellowsliip of mind, 

The saints below and saints above 
Their bliss and glory find. 

5 Here, in their house of pilgrimage, 
Tiiy statutes are their song ; 

There, through one bright, eternal age, 

Thy praises they prolong. 
G Lord, may our union form a part 

Of that thrice happy whole ; 
Derive its pulse from thee, the heart, 

Its life from thee, the soul. 

1012 Anniversary ; the children's jubilee. CM. 

HOSANNA, be the children's song, 
To Christ, the children's King ; 
His praise, to whom our souls belong, 

Let all the children sing, 
2 From little ones to Jesus brought, 

Hosanna now be heard , 
Let little infants now be taught 
To lisp that lovely word. 



3 Hosanna, sound from hill to hill, 
And spread from plain to plain, 

While louder, sweeter, clearer still. 
Woods echo to the strain. 

4 Hosanna, on the wings of light, 
O'er earth and ocean fly, 

Till morn to eve, and noon to night, 
And heaven to earth, reply. 

5 Hosanna, then, our song shall be ; 
Hosanna to our King : 

This is the children's jubilee; 
Let all the children sing. 

101b Children in heaven. CM. 

THERE is a glorious world of hght. 
Above the starry sky. 
Where saints departed, clothed in white, 
Adore the Lord most high. 

2 And hark, amid the sacred songs 
Those heavenly voices raise. 

Ten thousand thousand infant tongues 
Unite in perfect praise. 

3 Those are the hymns that we shall know, 
If Jesus we obey ; 

That 13 the place where we shall go. 
If found in wisdom's way. 

4 Soon will our earthly race be run — 
Our mortal frame decay ; 

Children and teachers, one by one. 
Must die and pass away. 

5 Great God, impress this serious thought, 
To-day, on every breast ; 

That both the teachers and the taught 
May dwell among the blest. 

i The God of nature and of grace. C M. 

THE God of nature and of grace 
In all his works appears ; 
llis goodness through the earth we trace. 
His grandeur iu the spheres. 

2 Behold this fair and fertile globe, 
By him in wisdom plann'd ; 

'Twas he who girded, like a robe, 
The ocean round ilie land. 

3 Lift to the arch of heaven your eye ; 
Thither his path pursue ; 

His glory, boundless as the sky, 
O'erwlielms the wond'nng view. 

4 How excellent, Lord, thy name, 
In all creation's lines : 

Spread through eternity, thy fame 
With rising lustre shines. 

5 These lower works that swell thy praise, 
High as our thoughts can tower, 

Are but a portion of thy ways, — 
The hiding of thy power. 

G Millions before thy presence stand, 

Who feel, while they adore, 
Fulness of joy at thy right hand, 

And pleasures evermore.

Longing to he dissolved in love. 



C. M. 



P;SUS hath died that I might live, 
Might Uve to God alone ; 
III him eternal Hfe receive, 
And be in spirit one. 

2 Saviour, I thank thee for the grace. 
The gilt unspeakable ; 

And wait with arms of faith to' embrace, 
And all thy love to feel. 

3 My soul breaks out in strong desire 
The perfect bliss to prove ; 

My longing heart is all on fire 
To be dissolved in love. 

4 Give me thyself; from every boast, 
From every wish set free ; 

Let all I am in thee be lost. 
But give thyself to me. 

5 Thy gifts, alas I cannot suffice, 
Unless thyself be given ; 

Thy presence makes my paradise, 
And where thou art is heaven.

OGOD, we praise thee, and confess 
That thou the only Lord 
And everlasting Father art,

2 To thee all angels cry aloud ; 
To thee the powers on high, 

Both cherubim and seraphim, 
Continually do cry ; — 

3 holy, holy, holy Lord, 
Whom heavenly hosts obey. 

The world is with the glory fill'd 
Of thy majestic sway. 

4 The apostles' glorious company, 
And prophets crownd with light. 

With all the martyrs' noble host. 
Thy constant praise recite. 

5 The holy Church throughout the world, 
Lord, confesses thee, 

That thou eternal Father art, 
Of boundless majesty. 

IJI The Spirit s quickening power. CM. 

COME, Holy Spirit, heavenly Dove, 
With all thy quick'ning powers ; 
Kindle a flame of sacred love 
In these cold hearts of ours. 

2 Look how we grovel here below, 
Fond of these earthly toys ; 

Our souls, how heavily they go. 
To reach eternal joys. 

3 In vain we tune our formal songs, — 
In vain we strive to rise ; 

Hosannas languish on cur tongue?. 
And our devotion dies. 

4 Father, and shall we ever live 
At this poor dying rate ; 

Our love so faint, so cold to thee, 



5 Come, Holy Spirit, heavenly Dove, 
With all thy quick'ning powers; 

Come, shed abroad a Saviour's love. 
And that shall kindle ours.

Triumphantly thy Name I bless,— 
Thy conqu'ring Name I sine-. 

2 Thou, Lord, hast magnified thy Name ; 
Thou hast maintain' d thy cause ; 

And I enjoy the glorious shame. — 
The scandal of thy cross. 

3 Thou gavest me to speak thy word, 
In the appointed hour ; 

I have proclaim'd my dying Lord, 
And felt thy Spirit's power. 

4 Superior to my foes I stood. 
Above their smile or frown ; 

On all the strangers to thy blood 
With pitying love look'd down. 

5 let me have thy presence still ; 
Set as a flint my face. 

To show the counsel of thy Avill, 
Which saves a world by grace. 

6 let me never blush to own 
The glorious Gospel-word ; 

Which saves a world through faith alone, 
Faith in a dying Lord.

In whom God's word hath place,

Blessedness of instructing the young. 



1007 

DELIGHTFUL work! young souls to win, 
And turn the rising race 
From the deceitful paths of sin, 
To seek redeeming grace. 

2 Children our kind protection claim ; 
And God will well approve 

When infants learn to lisp his name. 
And their Redeemer love. 

3 Be ours the bliss, in wisdom's way 
To guide untutor'd youth, 

And show the mind which went astray 
The Way, the Life, the Truth. 

4 Almighty God, thine influence shed. 
To aid this blest design : 

The honours of thy Name be spread, 
And all the glory thine.

FOUNTAIN of life, to all below 
Let thy salvation roll ; 
Water, replenish, and o'erflow 
Every believing soul. 

2 Into tliat happy number, Lord, 
Us weary sinners take ; 

Jesus, fulfil thy gracious word, 
For thine own mercy's sake. 

3 Turn back our nature's rapid tide, 
And we shall flow to thee, 

While down the stream of time we glide 
To our eternity. 

4 The well of life to us thou art, — 
Of joy, the swelling flood ; 

Wafted by thee, with willing heart, 
We swift return to God. 

5 We soon shall reach the boundless sea ; 
Into thy fulness fall ; 

Be lost and swallow'd up in thee, — 
Oar God, our All in All.

Awhile show forth thy praise, 

Jesus, support the tott'ring clay, 
And lengthen out my days. 

3 If such a worm as I can spread 
The common Saviour's name, 

L .'t Him who raised thee from the dead, 
Quicken my mortal frame.

Which purges every stain ; 

And gladly Unger out below 
A few more years in pain.

And let it swiftly run ;

Illustrious as the sun ; 

And, bright with bonow'd rays divine, 
Tiieir glorious circuit run.

Tiieir light where'er they go ; 

And heavenly influences shed 
On all the world below.

Exulting in tneir might;

With gratitude I raise ;

Extends his mighty arm ?

¥ITH joy we meditate the grace 
Of our High Priest above ; 
Ilis heart is made of tenderness. 
His bowels melt with love. 

2 Touch'd with a sympathy within, 
He knows our feeble frame ; 

He knows what sore temptations mean, 
For he hath felt the same. 

3 He, in the days of feeble flesh, 
Pour'd out strong cries and tears. 

And in his measure feels afresh 
What every member bears. 

4 He'll never quench the smoking flax, 
But raise it to a flame ; 

The bruised reed he never breaks. 
Nor scorns the meanest name. 

5 Then let our humble faith address 
His mercy and his power; 

We shall obtain deliv'ring grace 
In every trying hour. 

t)Jl Perpetual praise. C. S£. 

YES,' I will bless thee, my God, 
Through all my fleeting days; 
And to eternity prolong 

Thy vast, thy boundless praise. 

2 Nor shall my tongue alone proclaim 
The honours of my God ; 

My life, with all its active powers. 
Shall spread thy praise abroad. 

3 Nor will I cease thy praise to sing, 
When death shall close mine eyes ; 

My thoughts shall then to nobler heights, 
And sweeter raptures rise, 

4 Then shall my lips, in endless praise, 
Their grateful tribute pay ; 

The theme demands an angel's tongue, 
And an eternal day.

1 01 Safety i7i union. C. M. 

JESUS, great Sliepherd of the sheep, 
To thee for help we fly : 
Thy Uttle flock in safety keep, 
For 1 the wolf is nigh. 

2 He comes, of hellish malice full, 
To scatter, tear, and slay ; 

He seizes every straggling soul 
As his own lawful prey. 

3 Us into thy protection take, 
And gather with thine arm ; 

Unless the fold we first forsake, 
The wolf can never harm. 

4 We laugh to scorn his cruel power, 
"While by our Shepherd's side ; 

The sheep he never can devour, 
Unless he first divide. 

5 do not suffer him to part 
The souls that here agree ; 

Bat make us of one mind and heart, 
And keep us one in thee. 

6 Together let us sweetly live, — 
Together let us die ; 

And each a starry crown receive, 
And reign above the sky.

Mourning departed joys. 



CM. 



SWEET was the time when first I felt 
The Saviour's pard'ning blood 
Applied to cleanse my soul from guilt, 
And bring me home to Grod. 

2 Soon as the morn the light reveal' d. 
His praises tuned my tongue ; 

And when the evening shades prevail' d, 
His love was all my song. 

3 In prayer my soul drew near the Lord, 
And saw his glory shine ; 

And when I read his holy word, 
I call'd each promise mine. 

4 But now, when evening shade prevails. 
My soul in darkness mourns ; 

And when the morn the light reveals, 
No light to me returns. 

5 Rise, Lord, and help me to prevail ; 
make my soul thy care; 

I know thy mercy cannot fail ; — 
Let me that mercy share. 



3 O may we ever walk in him, 
And nothing know beside, — 

Nothing desire, nothing esteem, 
But Jesus crucified.- 

4 Closer and closer let us cleave 
To his beloved embrace ; 

Expect his fulness to receive. 
And grace to answer grace. 

5 Partakers of the Saviour's grace. 
The same in mind and heart, 

Nor joy, nor grief, nor time, nor place, 
Nor life, nor death can part. 

6 Then let us hasten to the day 
Which shall our grace restore; 

When death shall all be done away, 
And bodies part no more. 

Zio The Lord's Supper : strength renewed. CM. 

OGOD, unseen, j^et ever near, 
Thy presence may we feel ; 
And thus, inspired with holy fear^ 
Before thy table kneel. 

2 Here may thy faithful people know 
The blessings of thy love ; 

The streams that through the desert flow, — 
The manna from above. 

3 We come, obedient to thy word, 
To feast on heavenly food ; 

Our meat, the body of the Lord, 
Our drink, his precious blood. 

4 Thus may we all thy words obey ; 
For we, God, are thine ; 

And go rejoicing on our way, 
Renew'd with strength divine.

BLEST be the dear uniting love, 
That will not let us part: 
Our bodies may far off remove, 
We still are one in heart.

Where he appoints we go; 

And still in Jesus' footsteps tread. 
And show his praise below.

The hope of our high calling. C. M, 

¥HAT is our calling's glorious hope. 
But inward holiness? 
For this to Jesus I look up ; 
I calmly wait for this. 

2 I wait till he shall touch me clean, — 
Shall life and power impart ; 

Give me the faith that casts out sin, 
And purifies the heart. 

3 This is the dear redeeming grace, 
For every sinner free ; 

Surely it shall on me take place, 
The chief of sinners, — me. 

4 From all iniquity, from all, 
He shall my soul redeem ; 

In Jesus I believe, and shall 
Believe myself to him. 

5 When Jesus makes my heart his home, 
My sin shall all depart ; — 

And, lo ! he saith, I quickly come, 
To fill and rule thy heart. 

6 Be it according to thy word ; 
Redeem me fi-om all sin ; 

My heart would now receive thee. Lord ; 
Come in, my Lord, come in !

To Jesus' name submit : 

Clothe with thy righteousness, and heal, 
And place me at thy feet.

A trembling homage pay,

Without superior love ; 

We see the truth, we judge aright, 
And wisdom's ways approve.

Our own infirmity ; 
And tremble at the trial near. 
And cry, God, to thee ! 

5 Our only help in danger's hour, 
Our only strength thou art ; 

Above the world and Satan's power 
And greater than our heart. 

6 Us from ourselves thou canst secure 
In nature's slipp'ry ways ; 

And make our feeble footsteps sure 
By thy sufficient grace.

To kneel before thy face ; 

make us, creatures of thy power,

IS there a thmg too hard for thee. 
Almighty Lord of all ; 
Whose threat'ning looks dry up the sea, 
And make the mountains fall ?

And match Omnipotence? 

Ungrasp the hold of thy right hand. 
Or pluck the sinner thence ? 

3 Sworn to destroy, let earth assail ; 
Nearer to save thou art ; 

Stronger than all the powers of hell. 
And greater than my heart. 

4 Lo ! to the hills I lift mine eye ; 
Thy promised aid I claim-: 

Father of mercies, glorify 
Thy favourite Jesus' name. 

5 Salvation in that name is found, 
Balm of my grief and care; 

A medicine for every wound, — 
All, all I want is there. 



H«> TruHtinginthemercyo/God. <'. M. 

¥HY, my soul, why depressed, 
And whence thine anxious fears ? 
Let former mercies fix thy trust 
And check thy rising tears. 

2 Affliction is a stormy deep. 
Where wave succeeds to wave; 

Though o'er my head the billows sweep, 
I know the Lord can save. 

3 His grace and mercy trust, my soul, 
Nor murmur at his rod : 

In vain the waves of trouble roll 
While he is still thy God. 

boo Acquiescence in the Divine will. C. M 

AUTHOR of good, we rest on thee ; 
Thine ever watchful eye 
Alone our real wants can see, — 
Thy hand alone supply. 

2 In thine all gracious providence 
Our cheerful hopes confide ; 

let thy power be our defence, — 
Thy love our footsteps guide. 

3 And since, by passion's force subdued. 
Too oft, with stubborn will, 

We blindly shun the latent good, 
And grasp the specious ill, — 

4 Not what we wish, but what we want 
Let mercy still supply : 

The good unask'd, Father, grant; 
The ill, though ask'd, deny. 

iy)\} Chastisement received xcith humility. CM. 

IT is the Lord, who doth not grieve, 
Or needlessly reprove ; 
Saviour, we thankfully receive 
The tokens of thy love. 

2 These tokens may we ever prize, 

And answer their intent. 
By hst'ning to thy word, that cries, — 

Be zealous, and repent. 

oJo Love the test of disci pleship. C, M. 

OL"R God is love ; and all his saints 
His image bear below : 
The heart with love to God inspired, 
With love to man will glow. 

2 None who are truly born of God 
Can live in enmity ; 

Then may we love each other. Lord, 
As we are loved by thee. 

3 Heirs of the same immortal bliss, 
Our hopes and fears the same, 

With bonds of love our hearts unite, 
With mutual love inflame. 

4 So may the unbelieving world 
See how true Christians love ; 

And glorifv our Saviour's grace, 
And seek that grace to prove.

THOU, who, when we did complain, 







Didst all our griefs remove : 
O Saviour, do not now disdain 
Our humble praise and love. 

2 Since thou a pitying ear didst give. 
And hear us when we pray'd, 

We'll call upon thee while we live, 
And never doubt thy aid. 

3 Pale death, with all his ghastly train, 
Our souls encompass'd round ; 

Anguish, and fear, and dread, and pain. 
On every side we found. 

4 To thee, Lord of life, we pray'd. 
An 1 did for succour flee: 

O save, — in our distress we said, — 
The souls that trust in thee. 

5 How good thou art! how large thy grace! 
How ready to forgive ! 

Tiiy mercies crown our fleeting days ; 
And by thy love we live. 

6 Our eyes no longer drown'd in tears. 
Our feet from falling free ; 

"Redeem'd from death and guilty fears, 
Lord, we'll live to thee. 

j05 Behold the Lamb. Q. M. 

LOOK unto Christ, ye nations ; own 
Your God, ye fallen race ; 
Look, and be saved through faith alone. 
Be justified by grace. 

2 See all your sins on Jesus laid : 
The Lamb of God was slain ; 

His soul was once an off'ring made 
For every soul of man. 

3 .\wake from guilty nature's sleep. 
And Christ shall give you light; 

Cast all your sins into the deep, 
And wash the Ethiop white. 

4 With me, your chief, ye then shall know, 
Shall feel, your sins forgiven ; 

Anticipate your heaven below, 
And own that love is heaven.

Loss of first love. 



CM. 



OTHAT I were as heretofore, 
When, warm in my first love, 

1 only lived my God to' adore. 

And seek the things above. 

2 Upon my head his candle shone. 
And, lavish of his grace. 

With cords of love he drew me on, 
And half unveil'd his face. 

3 Far, far above all earthly things 
Triumphantly I rode ; 

I soar'd to heaven on eagles' wings. 
And found, and talk'd with God. 



4 Where am I now ? from what a height 
Of happiness cast down ! 

The glory swallow'd up in night. 
And faded is the crown. 

5 God, thou art my home, my rest, 
For which I sigh in pain; 

How shall I 'scape into tliy breast? 
My Eden how regain ? 

Dl i Tliy commandments are exceeding hrodd. (' ^L 

DEEPEN the wound thy hands have made 
In this weak, helpless soul : 
Till mercy, with its balmy aid, 
Descend to make me whole, 

2 The sharpness of thy two-ed^ed sword 
Enable nie to' endure , 

Till bold to say, — My hall'wing Lord 
Hath wrought a perfect cure. 

3 I see the' exceeding broad command, 
Which all contains in one :

Children in the amis of Jesus. 



V. M. 



BE MOLD what condescending love 
Jesus on earth displays! — 
To babes and sucklings he extends 
The riches of his grace. 

2 He still the ancient promise keeps, 
To our forefathers given ; 

Young children in his arms he takes, 
And calls them heirs of heaven. 

3 Forbid them not, whom Jejus calls, 
Nor dare the claim resist, 

Since his own lips to us declare 
Of such will heaven consist. 

4 With flowing tears, and thankful hearts. 
We give them up to thee ; 

Receive them, Lord, into thine arms; 
Thine may they ever be.

LORD, all I am is known to thee ; 
In vain my soul would try 
To shun thy presence, or to flee 
The notice of thine eye. 

2 Thy all-surronnding sight surveys 
My rising and my rest, 

My public walks, my private ways. 
The secrets of my breast. 

3 My thoughts lie open to thee, Lord, 
Before they're form'd within, 

And ere my lips pronounce the word, 
Thou know'st the sense I mean. 

4 wondrous knowledge! deep and high: 
Where can a creature hide ? 

Within thy circling arms I lie, 
Beset on every side. 

5 So let thy grace surround me still, 
And like a bulwark prove, 

To guard my soul from every ill, 
Secured by sov'reign love. 

695 77ie bond ofperfectness. C. M. 

THE sacred bond ofperfectness 
Is spotless charity ; 
let us, Lord, we pray, possess 
The mind that was in thee. 

2 Grant this, and then from all below 
Insensibly remove : 

Our souls the change shall scarcely know, 
Made perfect first in love. 

3 With ease our souls through death shall 
Into their paradise ; [glide 

And thence on wings of angels ride 
Triumphant through the skies. 

4 Yet when the fullest joy is given, 
The same delight we prove; 

In earth, in paradise, m heaven, 
Our all in all is love. 



1 Aoo Deeds oflote^for Christ's sake, 

lU»iO rewarded. C, At 

HOW blest the children of the Lord, 
Who, walking in his sight. 
Make all the precepts of his word 
Their study and delight. 

2 That precious wealth shall be their dower, 
Which cannot know decay ; 

Which moth or rust shall ne'er devour, 
Or spoiler take away. 

3 For them that heavenly light shall spread, 
Whose cheering rays illume 

The darkest hours of life, and shed 
A halo round the tomb, 

4 Their works of piety and love, 
Perform'd through Christ, their Lord, 

Forever register'd above, 
Shall meet a sure reward. 

314 Feeling after God. C. M. 

THOU hidden God, for whom I groan, — 
Till thou thyself declare, 
God, inaccessible, unknown, — 
Regard a sinner's prayer : 

2 A sinner welt'ring in his blood, 
Unpurged and unforgiven : 

Far distant from the living God, 
As far as hell from heaven. 

3 An unregen'rate child of man, 
To thee for help I call ; 

Pity thy fallen creature's pain, 
And raise me from my fall. 

4 The darkness which through thee I feel, 
Thou only canst remove ; 

Thine own eternal power reveal, 
Thine everlasting love. 

5 I w^ould not to thy foe submit ; 
I hate the tyrant's chain ; 

Send forth the pris'ner from the pit, 
Nor let me cry in vain. 

6 Show me the blood that bought my peace, 
The cov'nant blood apply ; 

And all my griefs at once shall cease, 
And all my sins shall die. 

100./ For a blessing on the children. C. XL 

WISDOM ! whose unfading power 
Beside the' Eternal stood, 
To frame, in nature's earliest hour, 
The land, the sky, the flood; 

2 Yet didst thou not disdain awhile 
An inliant form to wear, — 

To bless thy mother with a smile, 
And lisp thy falter' d prayer. 

3 Bat in thy Father's own abode, 
With Israel's elders round, 

Conversing high with Israel's God, 
Thy chiefest joy was found. 

4 So may our youth adore thy Name I 
And, Saviour ! deign to bless 

With fost'ring grace the timid flame 
Of early holiness.

OFOR an overcoming faith, 
To cheer my dying hours, — 
To triumph o'er approaching death, 
And all his frightful powers.

"Where is thy boasted vict'ry, Grave ? 
And where, Death, thy sting ? 

3 If sin be pardon' d, I'm secure ; 
Death has no sting beside: 

The law gives sin its damning power. 
But Christ, my ransom, died.

Immortal thanks be paid, — 

Who makes us conqu'rors, while we (";o,

And foremost of the Three : 

3 Supreme and all-suflficient God I 
When nature shall expire. 

And worlds, created by thy nod, 
Shall perish by thy fire ;

By creatures without end ;

Enter my soul, and work within, 
And kill and make alive. 

3 More of thy life, and more I have, 
As the old Adam dies: 

Bury me. Saviour, in thy grave. 
That I with thee may rise. 

4 Reign in me, Lord ; thy foes control, 
Who would not own thy sway ; 

Diffuse thine image through my soul; 
Shine to the perfect day.

And seal me thine abode ; 

make me glorious all within, — 
A temple built by God!

And speak it to my heart. 

3 In manifested love explain 
Thy wonderful design ; 

W^hat meant the suff'ring Son of Man, — 
The streaming blood divine ?

And hve and die below.

And my Redeemer know ? —

LET worldly minds the world pursue ; 
It has no charms for me : 
Once I admired its trifles too, 
But grace hath set me free. 

2 Its pleasures can no longer please, 
Nor happiness afford : 

Far from my heart be joys like these, 
Now I have seen the Lord. 

3 As by the light of opening day 
The stars are all conceal'd. 

So earthly pleasures fade away 
When Jesus is reveal'd. 

4 Creatures no more divide my choice ; 
I bid them all depart : 

His name, his love, his gracious voice. 
Have fix'd my roving heart. 

o4:Z Be waiteth to he gracious. C. M. 

JESUS, Redeemer of mankind. 
Display thy saving power; 
Thy mercy let the sinner find, 
And know his gracious hour. 

2 AVho thee beneath their feet have trod, 
And crucified afcesh. 

Touch with thine all- victorious blood. 
And turn the stone to flesh. 

3 Open their eyes thy cross to see, — 
Their ears, to hear thy cries : 

Sinner, thy Saviour weeps for thee ; 
For thee he weeps and dies. 

4 All the day long he meekly stands. 
His rebels to receive ; 

And shows his wounds, and spreads his hands, 
And bids you turn and live. 

5 Turn, and your sins of deepest dye 
He will with blood efface; 

E'en now he waits the blood to' apply ; — 
Be saved, be saved by grace.

Beat down our wrath, root out our pride. 
And calm each troubled soul. 

3 Subdue in us the carnal mind ; 
Its enmity destroy ; 

"With cords of love our spirits bind, 
And melt us into joy. 

4 Us into closest union draw, 
And in our inward parts 

Let kindness sweetly write her law, 
And love command our hearts.

Our jarring wills control ;

See how these Christians love !

P;SUS, the all-restoring Word, 
My fallen spirit's hope, 
After thy lovely likeness. Lord, 
Ah 1 when shall I wake up ? 

2 Thou, my God, thou only art 
The Life, the Truth, the Way ; 

Quicken my soul, instruct my heart. 
My sinking footsteps stay. 



3 Of all thou hast in earth below, 
In heaven above, to give, 

Give me thy only love to know, — 
In thee to walk and live. 

4 Fill me with all the life of love ; 
In mystic union join 

Me to thyself, and let me prove 
The fellowship divine. 

5 Open the intercourse between 
My longing soul and thee, 

Never to be broke off again 
To all eternity. 

;)0O Pray without ceasing. C. M. 

SHEPHERD Divine, our wants relieve 
In this our evil day ; 
To all thy tempted foU'wers give 
The power to watch and pray. 

2 Long as our fiery trials last, — 
Long as the cross we bear, — 

let our souls on thee be cast 
In never-ceasing prayer. 

3 Till thou thy perfect love impart ; 
Till thou thyself bestow, 

Be this the cry of every heart, — 
I will not let thee go ; — 

4 I will not let thee go, unless 
Thou tell thy name to me ; 

With all thy great salvation bless, 
And make me all like thee. 

5 Then let me on the mountain-top 
Behold thy open face ; 

Where faith in sight is swallow'd up, 
And prayer in endless praise. 

OUO For tictoriouH faith. C. M. 

OrOR a fluth that will not shrink. 
Though press'd by every foe. 
That will not tremble on the brink 
Of any earthly woe ; — 

2 That will not murmur or complain 
Beneath the chast'ning rod. 

But, in the hour of grief or pain. 
Will lean upon its God ; — 

3 A faith that shines more bright and clear 
When tempests rage without ; 

That when in danger knows no fear. 
In darkness feels no doubt ; — 

4 That bears, unmoved, the world's dread 
Nor heeds its scornful smile ; [frown. 

That seas of trouble cannot drown. 
Or Satan's arts beguile ; — 

5 A faith that keeps the narrow way 
Till life's last hour is fled. 

And with a pure and heavenly ray 
Illumes a dying bed. 

G Lord, give us such a faith as this. 
And then, whate'er may come, 

We'll taste, e'en here, the hallow'd bliss 
Of an eternal home.

LONG- have I seeinM to serve thoc. Lord, 
With unavailing pain ; 
Fasted, and pray'd, and read thy word, 
And heard it preach'd in vain. 

2 Oft did I with the' assembly join, 
And near thy altar drew : 

A form of godliness was mine, — 
The power, I never knew. 

3 I rested in the outward law, 
Nor knew its deep design : 

The length and breadth, I never saw, 
And height, of love divine. 

4 To please thee, thus at length I see, 
Vainly I hoped and strove ; 

For Avhat are outward things to thee, 
Unless they spring from love ? 

5 I see the perfect law requires 
Truth in the inward parts ; 

Our full consent, our whole desires, 
Qur undivided hearts. 

G But I of means have made my boast ; 

Of means an idol made : 
The spirit in the letter lost, — 

The substance, in the shade. 

7 Where am I now, or what my hope ? 

What can my weakness do ? 
Jesus, to thee my soul looks up : 

'Tis thou must make it new.

BECAUSE for me the Saviour prays, 
And pleads his death for me,

And spared the barren tree.

Now, Lord, the power impart, 

And let mine eyes with tears o'erflow, 
And break my stubborn heart. 

3 I now from all my sins would turn, 
To my atoning God ; 

And look on him I pierced, and mourn, 
And feel the sprinkled blood : — 

4 Would nail my passions to tlie cross, 
Where my Redeemer died ; 

And all things else account but loss 
For Jesus crucified. 

5 Giver of penitential pain, 
Before thy cross I he ; 

In grief determined to remain 
Till thou thy blood apply.' 

G Forgiveness on my conscience seal ; 

Bestow thy promised rest ; 
With purest love thy servant fill, 

And number with the blest.

I full redemption have ; 

But thou, through whom I come to God, 
Canst to the utmost save. 

3 From sin, — the guilt, the power, the pain, 
Thou wilt redeem my soul: 

Lord, I believe — and not in vain; 
My faith shall make me whole. 

4 I, too, with thee, shall walk in white ; 
With all thy saints shall prove 

The length and depth, and breadth and heiglut, 



Of everlasting love.

My ears, attend the cry: — 
Ye living men. come view the ground 
Where you must shortly lie. 

2 Princes, this clay must be your bed, 
In spite of all your towers ; 

The tall, the wise, the reverend head, 
Shall lie as low as ours. 

3 Great Grod! is this our certain doom, 
And are we still secure ? 

Still walking downward to the tomb. 
And yet prepared no more ?

Didst teach adoring faith to cry, —

Who can thine every fear disarm. 
And save tliee from despair ?

All meanly wrapp'd in swathing-bands, 
And HI a manger laid.

Appear'd a shining throng 

Of angels, praising God on high, 
Who thus address'd their song:

And to the earth be peace : 

Good-will henceforth, from heaven to men. 
Begin and never cease.

Like him, in grace and knowledge grow,

And hail the morning light.

Your basejJt crimes he bore ; 

Tour sins were all on Jesus laid, 
That you might sin no more. 

3 To earth the great Redeemer came, 
That you might come to heaven ; 

Believe, believe in Jesus' name,

From age to age it never ends;

So wide it never pass'd by one,

But, far above the skies,

3 Upon us lay thy mighty hand ; 
Our words and thoughts restrain ; 

And bow our souls to thy command, 
Nor let our faith be vain. 

4 Pri-'ners of hope, we wait the hour 
Which shall salvation bring : 

When all we are shall own thy power, 
And call our Jesus, King.

74.ft 3916 only solace in sorrow. C. M. 

OTJ^OU who driest the mourner's tear, 
How dark this world would bo, 
If, when deceived and wounded here. 
We could not tiy to ihee. 

2 The friends who in our sunshine live, 
When winter comes, are flown ; 

And he who has but tears to give, 
Must weep those tears alone. 

3 But Christ can heal that broken heart, 
Which, like the plants that throw 

Their fragrance from the wounded part, 
Breathes sweetness out of woe. 

4 O who could bear life's stormy doom. 
Did not His wing of lovy 

Come brightly wafcing through the gloom. 
Our peace-branch from above. 

5 Then sorrow,touch'd by Him, grows bright. 
With more than rapture's ray ; 

As darkness shows us worlds of light, 
We never saw by day. 
^9 The fulness of God. CM. 

BEING of beings, God of lovs. 
To thee our hearts we raise ; 
Thy all-sustaining power we iH'Ove, 
And gladly sing thy praise. 

2 Thine, wholly thine, we pant to be ; 
Our sacrifice receive : 

Made, and preserved, and saved by thee, 
To thee ourselves we give. 

3 Heavenward our every wish aspires, 
For all thy mercy's store ; 

The sole return thy love requires. 
Is that we ask for more. 

4 For more we ask ; we open then 
Our hearts to' embrace thy ^\dll ; 

Turn, and revive us, Lord, again ; 
With all thy fulness fill. 

5 Come, Holy Ghost, the Saviour's love 
Shed in our hearts abroad ; 

So shall we ever live, and move, 
And be, with Christ in God. 

7 I 1 Perfect lutrmony and joy unspeakable. C. M. 

ALL praise to our redeeming Lord, 
Who joins us by his grace. 
An 1 bids us, each to each restored. 
Together seek his face. 

2 He bids us build each other up ; 
And, gather'd into one. 

To our high calling's glorious hope, 
We hand in hand go on. 

3 The gift which he on one bestows. 
We all delight to prove ; 

The grace through every vessel flows. 
In purest streams of love. 

4 E'en now we think and 8i)eak the same. 
And cordially agree, — 

United all, through Jesus' name, 
In perfect harmony. 

5 We all partake the joy of one ; 
The common peace we feel ; 

A peace to sensual minds unknown, — 
A joy unspeakable.

In Jesus be so sweet,

To meet your God prepare ; 

For, lo ! the seventh angel pours 
His \ial on the air. 

3 Lo ! from their seats the mountains leap 
The mountains are not found : 

Transported far into the deep. 
And in the ocean drown'd. 

4 Who then shall live and face the throne. 
And see the Judge severe ? 

When heaven and earth are fled and gone, 
O where shall I appear? 

5 Now, only now, against that hour 
We may a place ]:rovide ; 

Beyond the grave, beyond the power 
Of hell, our spirits hide : 

6 Firm in the all-destroying shock. 
May ^iew the final scene ; 

For, lo ! the everlasting Kock 
Is cleft to take us in.

GLORY to thee, thou righteous God, 
Righteous, yet kind to me ; 
For under thy paternal rod. 
Paternal love I see.

Thy gracious hand I bless ; 

And. thinking of thy love, I weep, 
For my unfaithfulness. 

3 Thou dost in tenderness chastise. 
And graciously reprove : 

My Father ! — all within me cries,^ 
Thy ways are truth and love.

FROM all that dwell below the skies, 
Let the Creator's praise arise ; 
Let the Redeemer's name be sunpf, 
Through every land, by every tongue. 

2 Eternal are thy mercies, Lord ; 
Eternal truth attends thy word: 

Thy praise shall sound from shore to shore, 
Till sun shall rise and set no more. 

3 Your lofty themes, ye mortals, bring ; 
In songs of praise divinely sing; 

The great salvation loud proclaim. 
And shout for joy the Saviour's name. 

4 In every Ian 1 begin the song ; 
To every land the strains belong : 
In cheerful sounds all voices raise, 
And fill the world with loudest praise. 

4./4 The promised rest. L. M. 

GOD of all power, and truth, and grace. 
Which shall from age to age endure ; 
Whose word, when heaven and earth shall 

pass, 
Remains, and stands forever sure : — 

2 That I thy mercy may proclaim. 
That all mankind thy truth may see, 
Hallow thy great and glorious name, 
And perfect holiness in me. 

3 Give me a new, a perfect heart. 
From doubt, and fear, and sorrow free ; 
The mind which was in Christ impart, 
And let my spirit cleave to thee. 

4 that 1 now, from sin released, 
Thy word may to the utmost prove ; 
Enter into the promised rest, — 

'1 he Canaan of thy perfect love. 

Ouli Danger of final apostasy. L. M 

AH ! Lord, with trembling I confess, 
A gracious soul may fall from grace ; 
The salt may lose its seas'ning power, 
And never, never find it more. 
2 Lest that my fearful case should be. 
Each moment knit my soul to thee ; 
And lead me to the mount above. 
Through the low vale of humble love.

Nor take thy flight from me away ; 
Still with me let thy grace abide.

How sweet thine entertainments are I 
Never did angels taste abov^e

And every tongue confess thee Lord.

Where — but with thee, wh(.se open door 
Invites the helpless and the poor ? 

3 Did ever mourner plead with thee, 
And thou refuse that mourner's plea 't 
Does not the promise still remain, 
That none shall seek thy face in vain ?

Yet God, my God, forgets me not; 
And he is safe, and n)ust succeed.

551 ^'^ mercy-seat, L, M. 

EROM every stormy wind that blows, 
From every swelling tide of woes, 
There is a calm, a sure retreat ; 
'Tis found beneath the mercy-seat. 

2 There is a place where Jesus sheds 
The oil of gladness on our heads ; 

A place than all besides more sweet, — 
It is the blood-bought mercy-seat. 

3 There is a scene, where spirits blend, 
Where friend holds fellowship with friend ; 
Though sunder'd far, by faith they meet, 
Around one common mercy-seat. 

4 Ah ! whither could we flee for ai 1, 
When tempted, desolate, dismay'd ? 
Or how the hosts of hell defeat, 
Had suflf'ring saints no mercy-seat? 

5 There, there on eagle's wings we soar. 
And sin and sense molest no more ; 
And heaven comes down our souls to greet, 
While glory crowns the mercy-seat. 

i^Xy Meekness and patience. L. M. 

TIlOU Lambof God, thouPrinceof peace. 
For thee my thirsty soul doth pine ; 
Islj longing heart implores thy grace ; 
O make me in thy likeness shine. 
2 With fraudless, even, humble mind, 
Thy will in all things may I see ; 
In love be every wish resign'd. 
And hallow'd my whole heart to thee. 
When pain o'er my weak flesh prevails. 
With lamb-like patience arm my breast; 
When grief my wounded soul assails. 
In lowly meekness may I rest. 

4 Close by thy side still may I keep, 
Howe'er life's various current flow ; 
With steadfast eye mark every step, 
And follow where my Lord doth go. 

5 Thou, Lord, the dreadful fight hast won ; 
Alone thou hast the wine-press trod ; 

In me thy strength'ning grace be shown : 
may I conquer through thy blood. 

6 So, when on Zion thou shalt stand, 
And all heaven's host adore their King, 
Shall I be found at thy right hand. 
And, free from pain, thy glories sing. 

lUUO Tlie bong of triumph. L. M. 

[OOX may the last glad song arise, 
Through all the millions of the skies — 
That song of triumph which records 
That all the earth is now tlie Lord's. 

2 Let tljrones,andpowers,and kingdoms.be 
Obedient, mighty God, to thee; 
And over land, and stream, and main, 
Now wave the sceptre of thy reign. 

3 let that glorious anthem swell ; 
Let host to host the triumph tell. 
Till not one rebel heart remains, 
But over all the Saviour reigns.

SWEET is the work, my God, my King. 
Topraise thy name,give thanks,and sing; 
To show thy love by morning light, 
And talk of all thy truth by night. 

2 Sweet is the day of sacred rest ; 
No mortal cares shall seize my breast; 
may my heart in tune be iound, 
Like David's harp of solemn sound. 

3 When grace h.os purified my heart. 
Then 1 shall share a glorious part : 
And fresh supplies of joy be shed, 
Like holy oil to cheer my head. 

4 Then shall I see, and hear, and know 
All I desired or wish'd below ; 

And every power find sweet employ 
In that eternal world of joy.

L. M. 

SINNERS, obey the heavenly call ; 
Your prison doors stand oi)en wide : 
Go forth, for Christ hath ransom'd all, 
For every soul of man hath died. 

2 'Tis his the drooping soul to raise; 
To rescue all by sin oppress' d ; 

To clothe them witli the robes of praise, 
And give their weary spirits rest. 

3 To help their grov'ling unbelief; 
Beauty for ashes to confer ; 

The oil of joy for abject grief; 
Triumphant joy for sad despair. 

4 To make them trees of righteousness, — 
The planting of the Lord below ; 

To spread the honour of his grace. 
And on to full perfection go. 

In hope., 'believing against hope. L. M. 

AWAY, my unbeUeving fear! 
Fear shall in me no more have place ; 
My Saviour doth not yet appear, — 
He hides the brightness of his face: 
But shall I therefore let him go. 
And basely to the tem.pter yield ? 
No, in the strength of Jesus, no, 

1 never will give up my shield. 

2 Although the vine its fruit deny, 
Although the olive yield no oil. 

The with'ring fig-trees droop and die, 
The fields elude the tiller's toil, — 
The empty stall no herd afibrd, 
And perish all the bleating race. 
Yet will I triumph in the Lord, — 
The God of my salvation praise. 

3 In hope, believing against hope, 
Jpsus, my Loid my God, I claim ; 
Jesus, my strength, shall lift me up; 
Salvation is in Jesus' name. 

To me he soon shall bring it nigh ; 
My soul shall then outstrip the wind ; 
On wings of love mount up on high, 
And leave the world and sin behind.

12b Christ our Prophet, Priest^ and King. L. M. 

TO US a child, of royal birth, 
End of the promises, is given ; 
The' Invisible appears on earth, — 
The Son of man, the God of heaven. 

2 A Saviour born, in love supreme, 
He comes, our fallen souls to raise ; 
He comes, his people to redeem, 
With all his plenitude of grace. 

3 The Christ, by raptured seers foretold, 
Fill'd with tlie Holy Spirit's power. 
Prophet, and Priest, and King, behold; 
And L'ord of all the world adore. 

4 The Lord of hosts, the God most high, 
Who quits his throne, on earth to live, 
With joy we welcome from the sky, 
With faith into our hearts receive. 

10— 'J God^s goodness crowns the year. L. M. 

ETERXAL Source of every joy, 
Well may thy praise our lips employ. 
While in thy temple we appear. 
Whose goodness crowns the circling year, 

2 The flowery spring, at thy command. 
Embalms the air, and paints the land ; 
The summer rays with vigour shine, 
To raise the corn, and cheer the vine. 

3 Thy hand, in autumn, richly pours 
Through all our coasts redundant stores ; 
And winters, soften' d by thy care, 

No more a face of horror wear. 

4 Seasons, and months, and weeks, and days, 
Demand successive songs of praise; 

Still be the cheerful homage paid. 
With opening light and evening shade. 

.5 may our more harmonious tongue 
In worlds unknown pursue the song; 
And in those brighter courts adore, 
Where days and years revolve no more. 

L i O Rejoicing at the table, with godly sorrow. L. M. 

TO Jesus, our exalted Lord, 
The Name by heaven and earth adored, 
Fain would our hearts and voices raise 
A cheerful song of sacred praise. 

2 But all the notes which mortals know. 
Are weak, and languishing, and low; 
Far, far above our humble songs. 

The theme demands immortal tongues. 

3 Yet while around his board we meet, 
And humbly worship at his feet, 

let our warm aflfections move. 
In glad returns of grateful love ! 

4 Let humble, penitential woe, 
In tears of godly sorrow flow ; 
And thy forgiving smiles impart 
Life, hope, and joy to every heart. 



5 J-r Rejoicing at the return of the Sahhath. L. M 

MY opening eyes with rapture see 
The dawn of this returning day ; 
My thoughts, God, ascend to thee, 
While thus my early vows I pay. 

2 I yield my heart to thee alone, 
Nor would receive another guest : 
Eternal King, erect thy throne. 

And reign sole monarch in my breast. 

3 bid this trifling world retire, 
And drive each carnal thought away ; 
Nor let me feel one vain desire, 

One sinful thought, through all the day. 

4 Then, to thy courts when I repair. 
My soul shall rise on joyful wing, — 
The wonders of thy love declare. 
And join the strains ivhich angels sing. 



Love which passeth knowledge. 



L.M 



292 

OF Him who did salvation bring, 
I could forever think and sing; 
Arise, ye needy, —he'll relieve; 
Arise, ye guilty, — he'll forgive. 

2 Ask but his grace, and lo, 'tis given ; 
Ask, and he turns your hell to heaven : 
Though sin and sorrow wound my soul, 
Jesus, thy balm will make it whole. 

3 To shame our sins he blush'd in blood ; 
He closed his eyes to show us God : 

Let all the world fall down and know, 
That none but God such love can show. 

4 'Tis thee I love, for thee alone 

I shed my tears and make my moan , 
Where'er I am, where'er I move, 
I meet the object of my love. 

5 Insatiate to this spring I fly; 

1 drink, and yet am ever dry : 

Ah ! who against thy charms is proof? 
Ah ! who that loves can love enough ? 

OOy God, my glory and my shield. L. M 

THE tempter to my soul hath said, — 
There is no help in God for thee : 
Lord, lift thou up thy servant's head ; 
My glory, shield, and solace be. 

2 Thus to the Lord I raised my cry ; — 
He heard me from his holy hill ; 

At his command the waves roll'd by; 
He beckon'd, — and the winds were still, 

3 I laid me down and slept, — I woke; 
Thou, Lord, my spirit didst sustain ; 
Bright from the east the morning broke,— 
Thy comforts rose on me again. 

4 I will not fear, though armed throngs 
Surround my steps in all their wrath ; 
Salvation to the Lord belongs ; 

His presence guards his people's path.

374 ^« stubborn heart. L. M. 

OFOR a glance of heavenly day, 
To take this stubborn heart away ; 
And thaw, with beams of love divine. 
This heart, this frozen heart of mine. 

2 The rocks can rend; the earth can quake; 
The seas can roar; the mountains shake: 
Of feelin?, all things show some sign, 

But this unfeeling heart of mine. 

3 To hear the sorrows thou hast felt, 

Lord, an adamant would melt : 
But I can read each moving line, 
And nothing moves this heart of mine. 

4 Thy judgments too, which devils fear — 
Amazing thought ! — unmoved I hear; 
Goodness and wrath in vain combine 

To stir this stupid heart of mine, 

5 But power divine can do the deed ; 
And, Lord, that power I greatly need : 
Thy Spirit can from dross refine. 

And melt and change this heart of mine. 

i \yL Safety and security in the arms of Jesus. L. M. 

OD of my life, whose gracious power 
Through varied deaths my soul hath led. 
Or turn'd aside the fatal hour. 
Or lifted up my sinking head ; — 

2 In all my ways thy hand I own, — 
Thy ruling providence I see ; 
Assist me still my course to run, 
And still direct my paths to thee. 

3 \Vhither, whither should I fly, 
But to my loving Saviour's breast! 
Secure within thine arms to he. 
And safe beneath thy wings to rest 

4 I have no skill the snare to shun, 
But thou, Christ, my wisdom art: 

1 ever into ruin run, 

But thou art greater than my heart. 

5 Foolish, and impotent, and blind, 
Lead me a way I have not known; 
Bring me where I my heaven may find, — 
The heaven of loving thee alone. 

Jo4 Put on thy.l)eautiful garments^ Jerusalem. L. M. 

AWAKE, Jerusalem, awake, — 
No longer in thy sins lie down : 
The garment of salvation take ; 
Thy beauty and thy strength put on. 

2 Shake off the dust that blinds thy sight. 
And hides the promise from thine eyes; 
Arise, and struggle into light; 

The great Deliv'rer calls, — Arise! 

3 Shake off the bands of sad despair; 
Zion, assert thy liberty; 

Look up, thy broken heart prepare, 
And Grod shall set the captive free. 

4 Vessels of mercy, sons of grace. 
Be purged from every sinful stain ; 
Be like your Lord, his word embrace, 
Nor bear his hallo w'd name in vain.

The heavenly Zion, L. M. 

ARM of the Lord, awake, awake ! 
Thine own immortal strength put on ! 
With terror clothed, hell's kingdom shake-. 
And cast thy foes with fury down. 

2 As in the ancient days appear I 
(The sacred annals speak thy fame ;) 
Be now omnipotently near. 

To endless ages still the same. 

3 By death and hell pursued in vain, 
To thee the ransom'd seed shall come ; 
Shouting, their heavenly Zion gain. 

And pass through death triumphant home. 

4 The pain of life shall then be o'er, 
The anguish and distracting care; 
There sighing grief shall weep no more. 
And sin shall never enter there. 

104»J Calm in the storm. L. M. 

ri LORY to Thee, whose powerful word 
vT Bids the tempestuous winds arise; 
Glory to thee, the sov'reign Lord 
Of air, and earth, and sea, and skies. 

2 Let air, and earth, and skies obey, 
And seas thine awful will perform : 
From them we learn to own thy sway, 
And shout to meet the gath'ring storm. 

3 What though the floods lift up their voice ; 
Thou hearest. Lord, our louder cry ; 

They cannot damp thy children's joys, 
Or shake the soul when God is nigli. 

4 Headlong we cleave the yawning deep, 
And back to highest heaven are borne, 
Unmoved, though rapid \vhirlwinds sweep, 
And all the watery world upturn. 

5 Roar on, ye waves ; our souls defy 
Your roaring to disturb our rest; 

In vain to' impair the calm ye try — 
The calm in a believer's breast. 

6 Rage, while our faith the Saviour tries, 
Thou sea, the servant of his will ; 

Rise, while our God permits thee, rise, 
But fall when he shall say, — Be still. 

yyO Triumphs of mercy. L. M. 

ARM of the Lord, awake, awake ! 
Put on thy strength— the nations shake, 
And let the world, adoring, see 
Triumphs of mercy wrought by thee. 

2 Say to the heathen, from thy throne, 
I am Jehovah — God alone : 

Thy voice their idols shall confound, 
And cast their altars to the ground. 

3 No more let creature blood be spilt — 
Vain sacrifice for human guilt I 

But to each conscience be applied 
The blood that flow'd from Jesi s' sida 

4 Almighty God, thy grace proclaim, 
In every land, of every name; 

Let adverse powers before thee fall, 
And crown the Saviour Lord of all.

And wait thy sanctifying word. 

And thee their utmost Saviour own; —

Stand forth thy chosen witnesses; 
Thy power unto salvation show, 
And perfect holiness below. 

4 In them let all mankind behold 
How Christians lived in days of old ; 
Mighty their envious foes to move, — 
A proverb of reproach — and love. 

5 Call them into thy wondrous light, 
Worthy to walk with thee in white : 
Make up thy jewels, Lord, and show 
Thy glorious, spotless Church below. 

6 From every sinful wrinkle free, 
Redeem'd from all iniquity, 

The fellowship of saints make known,

While lovely tempers, fruits of grace.

And when like wand'ring sheep we stray 'd

High as the heavens our voices raise ; 
And earth, with her ten thousand tongues, 
Shall fill thy courts with sounding praise.

Firm as a rock thy truth shall stand, 
When roUing years shall cease to move.

510 Tlie light yoke and easy burden. L. M. 

OTHAT my load of sin were gone ; 
that I could at last submit 
At Jesus' feet to lay it down — 
To lay my soul at Jesus' feet. 

2 Rest for my soul I long to find : 
Saviour of all, if mine thou art, 
Give me thy meek and lowly mind, 
And stamp thine image on my heart. 

3 Break off the yoke of inbred sin, 
And fully set my spirit free ; 

1 cannot rest till pure within, — 
Till I am wholly lost in thee. 

4 Fain would I learn of thee, my God; 
Thy light and easy burden prove ; 

The cross all stain'd with hallow'd blood, 
The labor of thy dying love. 

5 I would, but thou must give the power ; 
My heart from every sin release ; 

Bring near, bring near the joyful hour. 
And fill me with thy perfect peace. 

2!) i The unspeakalle gift. L. M. 

HAPPY the man who finds the grace, 
The blessing of God's chosen race. 
The wisdom coming from above. 
The faith that sweetly works by love. 

2 Happy, beyond description, he 
Wiio knows ihe Saviour died for me I 
The gift unspeakable obtains. 

And heavenly understanding gains. 

3 Wisdom divine ! who tells the price 
Of wisdom's costly merchandise ? 
Wisdom to silver we prefer. 

And gold is dross compared to her. 

4 Her hands are fill'd with length of days. 
True riches, and immortal praise, — 
liiches of Christ on all bestow'd. 

Anil honour that descends from God. 

5 To purest joys she all invites, — 
Chaste, holy, spiritual delights ; 
HtT ways are ways of pleasantness. 
And all her flowery paths are peace. 

G Happy the man who wisdom gains ; 
Thrice happy, who his guest retains : 
He owns, and shall forever own. 
Wisdom, and Christ, and heaven, are one. 

44q Hie highxcay of holiness. L. M. 

JESUS, my all, to heaven is gone, — 
He, whom I fix my hopes upon; 
His track 1 see, and I'll pursue 
The narrow way, till him I view. 

2 The way the holy prophets went, — 
The road that leads from banishment, — 
The King's highway of holine&s, 

I'll go, for all his paths are peace. 

3 This is the way I long have sought, 
And moum'd because I found it not; 
My grief a burden long has been, 
Because I was not saved from sin. 



4 The more I strove against its power, 

1 felt its weight and guilt the more; 
Till late I heard my Saviour say, — 
Come hither, soul, I am the way. 

5 Lo ! glad I come ; and thou, blest Lamb, 
Shalt take me to thee, as I am : 
Nothing but sin have I to give, — 
Nothing but love shall I receive. 

6 Then will I tell to sinners round. 
What a dear Saviour I have found ; 
I'll point to thy redeeming blood, 
And say, — Behold the way to G.>d, 

4 Jd Tliere remaineth a rest for thexye^ple of God. L. M. 

COME, thou greater than our heart, 
And make thy faithtui mercies known; 
The mind which was in thee impart : 
Thy constant mind in us be shown. 

2 let us by thy cross abide, 
Thee, only thee, resolved to know, 
The Lamb for sinners crucified, 

A world to save from endless wo. 

3 Take us into thy people's rest. 

And we from our own works shall cease; 
With thy meek Spirit arm our breast, 
And keep our minds in perfect peace. 

4 Jesus, for this we calmly wait ; 
let our eyes behold thee near ! 
Hasten to miake our heaven complete; 
Appear, our glorious God, appear. 

i)\){j Jlissionary meeting. L. M, 

ASSE:MBLED at thy great command, 
Befi^re tliy face, dread King, we stand: 
The voice that marshall'd every star, 
Has call'd thy people from afar. 

2 We meet through distant lands to spread 
The truth for which the martyrs bled ; 
Along the line — lo either pole — 

The anthem of ihy praise to roll. 

3 Our prayers assist ; accept our praise j 
Our hopes revive ; our courage raise ; 
Our counsels aid ; — to each impart 

The single eye, the faithful heart. 

4 Forth with thy chosen heralds come; 
Recall the wand'ring spirits home; 
From Zion's mount send forth the sound, 
To spread the spacious earth around. 

51)0 For the lambs of the flock. L. M. 

AUTHOR of faith, we seek thy face 
For all who feel thy work begun ; 
Confirm, and strengthen them in grace, 
And bring thy feeblest children on. 

2 Thou seest their wants, thou know'st their 
Be mindful of thy youngest care; [names; 
Be tender of the new-born lambs, 

And gently in thy bosom bear. 

3 In safety lead thy little flock,— 
From hell, the world, and sin, secure ; 
And set their feet upon the rock. 
And make in thee their goings sure.

( OO Comfort in the promises. L. M. j 

OGOD ! to thee we raise our eyes ; 
Calm resignation we implore ; 
let no munn'ring thought arise, 
But humbly let us still adore. 

2 "With meek submission may we bear 
Each needful cross thou shalt ordain; 
Nor think our trials too severe, 

Nor dare thy justice to arraign, 

3 For though mysterious now thy ways 
To erring mortals may appear, 
Hereafter we thy Name shall praise, 
For all our keenest suflf 'rings here. 

4 Thy needful help, God, afiford, 
Nor let us sink in deep despair ; 
Aid us to trust thy sacred word. 
And find our sweetest comfort there. 

94 < 77/e redeemed in heaven. L. M. 

LO ! rotmd the throne, a glorious band, 
The saints in countless myriads stand ; 
Of every tongue redeem'd to God, 
Array'd in garments wash'd in blood. 

2 Through tribulation great they came ; 
They bore the cross, despised the shame ; 
But now from all their labours rest, 

In God's eternal glory blest. 

3 They see the Saviour face to face ; 
They sing the triumph of his grace ; 
And day and night, with ceaseless praise, 
To him their loud hosannas raise. 

4 0, may we tread the sacred road 
That holy saints and martyrs trod ; 
"VVag*^ to the end the glorious strife, 
And win, like them, a crown of life. 

Jo— For the Jexcsnnd the fulness of the Gentiles. L. M. 

HEAD of the Church, whose Spirit fills 
And flows through every faithful soul. 
Unites in mystic love, and seals 
Them one, and sanctifies the whole : — 

2 Come, Lord, — thy glorious Spirit cries. 
And souls beneath the altar groan; 
Come, Lord, — the Bride on earth replies, 
And perfect all our souls in one. 

3 Pour out the promised gift on all ; 
Answer the universal— Come ! 

The fulness of the Gentiles call, 
And take thine ancient people home. 

4 To thee let all the nations flow; 
Let all obey the Gospel word ; 

Let all their bleeding Saviour know, 
Fiird with the glory of the Lord. 

5 0, for thy truth and mercy's sake, 
The purchase of thy passion claim ; 
Thine heritage, the Gentiles, take, 

And cause the world to know thy name. 



0"o Morning: The Lord is my portion. L. M. 

OGOD, my God, my all thou art : 
Ere shines the dawn of rising day, 
Thy sov'reign light within my heart. 
Thy all-enliv'ning power, display. 

2 For thee my thirsty soul doth pant. 
While in this desert land I live ; 
And, hungry as I am, and faint. 

Thy love alone can comfort give. 

3 Li a dry land, behold, I place 
My whole desire on thee, Lord ; 
And more I joy to gain thy grace. 
Than all earth's treasures can afibrd. 

4 More dear than life itself, thy love 
My heart and tongue shall still' employ; 
And to declare thy praise will prove 
My peace, my glory, and my joy. 

5 In blessing thee with grateful songs, 
My happy life shall glide away ; 

The praise that to thy Name belongs, 
Hourly, with lifted hands, I'll pay. 

lU»Ji) More blessed to give than to receive. L. M. 

HELP us. Lord, thy yoke to wear, 
Delighting in thy perfect will ; 
Each other's burdens learn to bear, 
And thus thy law of love fulfil. 

2 He that hath pity on the poor, 
Lendeth his substance to the Lord ; 
And, lo ! his recompense is sure, 
For more than all shall be restored. 

3 Teach us, with glad, ungrudging heart, 
As thou hast blest our various store. 
From our abundance to impart 

A lib'ral portion to the poor. 

4 To thee our all devoted be. 

In whom we breathe, and move, and live ; 
Freely we have received from thee; 
Freely may we rejoice to give. 

5 And while we thus obey thy word, 
And every call of want relieve, 

! may we find it, gracious Lord I 
More blest to give than to receive. 

,lul Seeking a tabernacle. L. M. 

WHEN to the exiled seer were given 
Those rapt'rous views of highest heaven, 
All glorious though the visions were, 
Yet he beheld no temple there. 

2 The new Jerusalem on high 
Hath one pervading sanctity; 

No sin to mourn, no grief to mar, — 
God and the Lamb its temple are. 

3 But we, frail sojourners below, 
The pilgrim-heirs of guilt and wo, 
Must seek a tabernacle where 

Our scatter'd souls may blend in prayer. 

4 Thou ! who o'er the cherubim 
Didst shine in glories veil'd and dim, 
With purer light our temple cheer, 
And dwell in unveil'd glory here.

529 Thirsting for the fulness of love. L. M. 

I THIRST, thou wounded Lamb of God, 
To wiish lue iu thy cleansing blood; 
To dwell within thy wounds; then pain 
Is sweet, and life or death is gain. 

2 Take my poor heart, and let it be 
Forever closed to all but thee : 

Seal thou my breast, and let me wear 
That pledge of love forever there. 

3 How blest are tliey who still abide 
Close shelter'd in thy bleeding side ! 
Who thence their life and strength derive. 
And by thee move, and in thee live. 

4 What are our works but sin and death, 
T II thou thy quick'ning Spirit breathe? 
Thou giv'st the power thy grace to move; 
wondrous grace ! boundless love ! 

5 How can it be, thou heavenly King, 
That thou shonldst us to glory bring; 
Make slaves the partners of thy throne, 
lJ;!ck'd with a never-fading crown? 

G Hence our hearts melt, our eyes o'erflow, 
ir words are lost, nor will we know, 
N.)r will we think of aught beside,— 
My Lord, my Love, is crucified.

DRAW near, Son of God, draw near; 
Us with thy flaming eye behold ; 
Still in thy Church do thou appear, 
An'l let our candlestick be gold. 

2 Still hold the stars in thy right hand, 
And let them in thy lustre glow, — 
The lights of a benighted land. 

The angels of thy Church below. 

3 Make good their apostolic boast; 
Their high commission let them prove ; 
Be temples of the Holy Ghost, 

And fill'd with faith, and hope, and love. 

4 Give them an ear to hear thy word ; 
Thou speakest to the churches now : 
And let all ti ngues confess their Lord, — 
liCt every knee to Jesus bow. 



OOO -No peace but in the favour of God. L. AS 

WHERE is now that glowing love 
That mark'd our union with the Lord ? 
Our hearts were fix'd on things above, 
Nor could the world a joy afford. 

2 Where is the zeal that led us then 
To make our Saviour's glory known? 
That freed us from the fear of men. 
And kept our eye on him alone ? 

3 Where are the happy seasons, spent 
In fellowship with him we loved ? 
The sacred joy, the sweet content. 
The blessedness that then we proved ? 

4 Behold, again we turn to thee ; 
cast us not away, thf)ugh vile : 
No peace we have, no joy we see, 
Lord our God, but in thy smile.

OLOYE, thy sov'reign aid impart. 
And guard the gift thyself hast given ; 
My portion, thou, my treasure art. 
My life, and happiness, and heaven. 

2 Would aught on earth my wishes share? 
Though dear as life the idol be, 

The idol from my breast I'll tear, 
Resolved to seek my all in thee. 

3 Whate'er T fondly counted mine, 
To thee, my Lord, I here restore; 
Gladly I all to thee resign ; 

Give me thyself, I ask no more.

COMFORT, ye ministers of grace. 
Comfort the people of your Lord ; 
lift ye up the fallen race, 
And cheer them by the Gospel word. 

2 Go into every nation, go ; 

Speak to their trembling hearts, and cry,— 
G'a I tidings unto all we show: 
Jerusalem, thy God is nigh. 

3 Hark ! in the wilderness a cry, 

A voice that loudly calls, — Prepare ; 
Prepare your hearts, for God is nigh, 
And waits to make his entrance there. 

4 The Lord your God shall quickly come; 
Sinners, repent, the call obey: 

Open your hearts to make him room ; 
Ye desert soul •, prepare the way. 

5 The Lord shall clear his way through alii 
What'j'er obstructs, obstructs in vain ; 

The vale shall rise, the mountain fall. 
Crooked be straight, and ruggc d plain. 

G The glory of the Lord display'. I, 
Shall all mankind together view; 
And what his mouth in truth hath said. 
His own almighty hand shall do.

'21 The panoply of truth. L. M. ' 969 

BEHOLD the Christian warrior stand 

In all the armour of his God; I 

The Spirit's sword is in his hand, ' 

His feet are with the Gospel shod : — \ 

2 In panoply of truth complete, : 
Salvation's helmet on his head ; ; 
With righteousness a breast-plate meet, | 
And foith's broad shield before him spread ; [ 

3 Undaunted to the field he goes; \ 
Yet vain were skill and valour there, ! 
Unless, to foil his legion foes, j 
He takes the trustiest weapon, prayer. j 

4 Thus, strong in his Redeemer's strength, ! 
Sin, death, and hell, he tramples down; | 
Fights the gooil fight, and wins at length, ■ 
Through merc}^, an immortal crown. 



Tilt tokens of Ilia grace. 



L. M. 



AND will the great eternal God 
On earth establish his abode ? 
And will he, from his radiant throne, 
Accept our temples for his own ? 

2 These walls we to thy Ijonour raise : 
Long may they echo with thy praise ; 
And thou, descending, fill the place 
With choicest tokens of thy grace. 

3 Here let the great Redeemer reign, 
With all the graces of his train ; 
While power divine his word attends, 
To conquer foes, and cheer his friends. 

4 And in the great decisive day. 
When God the nations shall survey, 
May it before the world appear 
That crowds were boin to glory here.

vT The joy that from thy presence springs ; 
To spend one day with thee on earth 
Exceeds a thousand days of mirth. 

2 Might I enj(-)y the meanest place 
Within thy house, O God of grace, 
Not tents of ease, or thrones of power, 
Shall tempt my feet to leave thy door. 

3 God is our sun, he makes our day ; 
God is our shield, he guards our way 
From all assaults of hell and sin. 
From foes without and foes within, 

4 All needful grace will God bestow, 
And crowm that grace with glory too ; 
lie gives us all things^ and withholds 
No real good from upright souls. 

5 God our King, whose sov'reign sway 
The glorious hosts of heaven obey. 

And devils at thy presence flee. 
Blest is the man that trusts in thee. 



JESUS, thy blood and righteousness 
My beauty aie, my glorious di-ess : 
'Midst flaming worlds, in these array'd. 
With joy shall I lift up my head. 

2 Bold shall I stand in thy great day, 
For who aught to my charge shall lay ? 
Fully absolved through these I am, — 
From sin and fear, from guilt and shame 

3 The holy, meek, unspotted Lamb, 
Who from the Father's bosom came, — 
Who died for me, e'en me to' atone, — 
Now for my Lord and God I own. 

4 Lord, I believe thy precious blooJ, — 
Which, at the mercy-seat of God, 
Forever doth for sinners jjlead, — 

For me, e'en for my soul, was shed. 

5 Lord, I believe were sinners more 
Than sands upon the ocean shore. 
Thou hast for all a ransom paid, 
For all a full atonement made.

Infinite indebtedness. 

GREAT God, let all our tuneful powers 
Aw^ake, and sing thy mighty Name : 
Thy hand revolves the circling hours — 
Thy hand, from whence our being came. 

2 Seasons and moons, still rolling: round 
In beauteous order, speak thy praise ; 
And years, with smiling mercy crown'd, 
To thee successive honours raise. 

3 Our life, and health, and friends, wo owe 
All to thy vast, unbounded love ; 

Ten thousand precious gifts below, 
And hope of nobler joys above.

Till sense and language are no more;

Through ever'.astiug yea'-s adore.

SHOW pity, Lord, Lord, forgive; 
Let a repeuting rebel live. 
Are not thy mercies large and free ? 
May not a sinner trust in thee ? 

2 My crimes are great, but don't surpass 
The power and glory of thy giace ; 
Great Go 1, thy nature hath no bound, — 
So let thy pard'ning love be found. 

3 O wash my soul from every sin, 
And make my guilty conscience clean ; 
Here on my heart the burden lies. 
And past offences pain my eyes. 

4 My lips with shame my sins confess. 
Against thy law, against thy grace ; 
L:)rd, should thy judgments grow severe, 
I am condemn'd, but thou art clear. 

5 Should sudden vengeance seize my breath? 
1 must pronounce thee just, in death ; 
And if my soul were sent to hell, 

Tny righteous law approves it well. 

Yet save a trembling sinner, Lord, 
Wlijse hope, still hov'ring round thy word. 
Would light on some sweet promise there, — 
Some sure support against despair.

To thee, lo, now my soul I bow ;

2 Be thou my strength, — be thou my way ; 
Protect me through my life's short day : 

In all my acts may wisdom guide. 
And keep me. Saviour, near thy side. 

3 In fierce temptation's darkest hour, 
Save me from sin and Satan's power; 
Tear every idol from thy throne. 
And reign, my Saviour, reign alone. 

4 My suff'ring time shall soon be o'er; 
Tlien shall I sigh and weep no more; 
My ransom'd soul shall soar away,

And kiss his late-returning son ; 
Ready your loving Saviour stands, 
And spreads for you his bleeding hands. 

3 Ready the Spirit of his love, 
Just now the stony to remove ; 

To' apply and witness with the blood, 
And wash and seal the sons of God.

To triumph in your blest estate ;

The spotless Lamb of God is slain.

All grace is now to sinners given ; 

And, lo ! I plead the' atoning b'ood, 
And in thy right I claim my heaven.

MY gracious Lord, I own thy right 
To every service I can pay, 
And call it my supreme delight 
To hear thy dictates, and obey. 

2 What is my being but for thee, — 
Its sure support, its noblest end ? 
'Tis my delight thy face to see. 
And serve the cause of such a Friend. 

.3 I would not sigh for worldly joy, 
Or to increase my worldly good ; 
Xor future days nor powers employ 
To spread a sounding name abroad. 

4 'Tis to my Saviour I would live, — 
To him who for my ransom died ; 
Nor could all worldly honour give 
Such bliss as crowns me at his side. 

5 His work my hoary age shall bless, 
When youthful vigour is no more ; 
And my last hour of life confess 

His saving love, his glorious power. 

2.\i He giteth the increase. L. M. 

HIG-H on his everlasting throne. 
The King of saints his work surveys ; 
Marks the dear souls he calls his own, 
And smiles on the peculiar race. 

2 He rests well pleased their toils to see ; 
Beneath his easy yoke they move; 
^^'ith all their heart and strength agree 
In the sweet labour of his love. 

3 See where the servants of the Lord, 
A busy multitude, appear : 

For Jesus day and night employed. 
His heritage they toil to clear. 

4 The love of Christ their hearts constrains, 
And strengthens their unwearied hands ; 
Tliey spend their sweat, and blood, and pains. 
To cultivate Immanuel's lands. 

o Jesus their toil delighted sees, 
Their industry vouchsafes to crown : 
He kindly gives the wish'd increase. 
And sends the promised blessing down. 



He bled for us, he bled for you. 
And we will sing hosanna too. 

5 Proclaim hosannas, loud and clear, 
See David's Son and Lord appear ! 
All praise on earth to him be given. 
And glory shout through highest heaven.

L, M. 

JESUS, whose glory's streaming rays, 
Though duteous to thy high command, 
Not seraphs view with open face, 
But veil'd before thy presence stand : — 

2 How shall weak eyes of flesh,weigh'd down 
With sin, and dim with error's night. 
Dare to behold thy awful throne, 

Or view thy unapproached light ? 

3 Thy golden sceptre from above 
Reach forth ; lo ! my whole heart I bow ; 
Say to my soul, — Thou art my love, — 
My chosen 'midst ten thousand, thou. 

4 Jesus, full of grace! the sighs 
Of a sick heart with pity view ; 

Hark, how my silence speaks, and cries, —

Hosanna to the Son of David. 

WHAT are those soul-reviving strains 
Which echo thus from Salem's plains? 
What anthems loud, and louder still. 
So sweetly sound from Zion's hill ? 

2 Lo ! 'tis an infant chorus sings 
Hosanna to the King of kings : 

The Saviour comes! — and babes proclaim 
Salvation, sent in Jesus' name. 

3 Nor these alone their voice shall raise, 
For we will join this song of praise; 
Still Israel's children forward press. 

To hail the Lord their Righteousness. 

4 Messiah's name shall joy impart 
Alike to Jew and Gentile heart : 



THE eaith, with all her fulness, owns 
Jehovah for her sov'reign Lord ; 
The countless myriads of her sons 
Rose into being at his word. 

2 His word did out of nothing call 
The world, and founded all that is ; 
Launch'd on the floods this solid ball. 
And fix'd it in the floating seas. 

3 But who shall quit this low abode — 
Who shall ascend the heavenly place, 
And stand upon the mount of God, 
And see his Maker face to face ? 

4 The man whose hands and heart are clean 
That blessed portion shall receive ; 

He who by grace is saved from sin, 
Shall with his God in glory live : 

5 He shall obtain the starry crown ; 
And, number'd with the saints above, 
The God of his salvation own. 

The God of his salvation love. 

OO Jesus everyuJure present. L. IL 

JESUS, where'er thy people meet, 
There they behold thy mercy-seat; 
Where'er they seek thee, thou art found. 
And every place is hallow'd ground. 

2 For thou, within no walls confined, 
Dost dwell with those of humble mind ; 
Such ever bring thee where they come, 
And, going, take thee to their home. 

3 Great Shepherd of thy chosen few, 
Thy former mercies here renew ; 
Here, to our waiting heart'?, proclaim 
The sweetness of thy saving name.

Which pants to have no other will, 
But night and day to least on thee. 

3 While in this-region here below, 
No other good will I pursue : 

I'll bid this world of noise and show, 
With all its glitt'ring snares, adieu. 

4 That path with humble speed I'll seek 
In which my Saviour's footsteps shine ; 
Nor will I hear, nor will I speak, 

Of any other love but thine. 

5 Henceforth may no profane delight 
Divide this consecrated soul ; 
Possess it thou, who hast the right, 
As Lord and Master of the whole. 

G Nothing on earth do I desire. 
But thy pure love within my breast; 
This, only this, will I require, 
And freely give up all the rest.

None else can give or take away; 
O may I find it in my heart. 
And with me may it everistay. 

3 Thus may I drink, — and thirst no rnore 
For drops of finite happiness ; 

Spring up, well, in heavenly power, 
In streams of pure perennial peace. 



OKINGr of glory, thy rich grace 
Our feeble thought surpasses far ; 
Yea, e'en our crimes, though numberless, 
Less num'rous than thy mercies are. 

2 Still, Lord, thy saving health display. 
And arm our souls with heavenly zeal ; 
So, fearless, shall we urge our way 
Through all the powers of earth and hell.

Waiting for the promise. 



L. n. 



JESUS, full of truth and grace ! 
all-atoning Lamb of God I 
I wait to see thy glorious face ; 

1 seek redemption in thy blood. 

2 Thou art the anchor of my hope ; 
The faithful promise I receive : 
Surely thy death shall raise me up, 
For thou hast died that I might live. 

3 Satan, with all his arts, no more 
Me from the Grospel hope can move ; 
I shall receive the gracious power, 
And find the pearl of perfect love. 

4 My flesh, which cries, — It cannot be, 
Shall silence keep before the Lord ; 
And earth, and hell, and sin shall flee 
At Jesus' everlastino; word.

ri OD of my life, through all my days 
vT My grateful powers shall sound thy prais<.^ ; 
My song shall wake with opening light, 
And cheer the dark and silent night. 

2 When anxious cares would break my rosf , 
And griefs would tear my throbbing breast, 
Thy tuneful praises, raised on high^ 
Shall check the murmur and the sigh. 

3 When death o'er nature shall prevail, 
And all the powers of language fail, 
Joy through my swimming eyes shall break 
And mean the thanks I cannot speak. 

4 But O, when that last conflict's o'er, 
And I am chain'd to earth no more, 
With what glad accents shall I rise 
To join the music of the skies ! 

5 Soon shall I learn the' exalted strains 
Which echo through the heavenly plains ; 
And emulate, with joy unknown, 

j The glowing seraphs round the throne. 

8 The cheerful tribute will I give. 
Long as a deathless soul shall live : 
A work so sweet, a theme so high, 
Demands and crowns eternity.

Descend on our apostate race. 

2 Give tongues of fire, and hearts of love. 
To preach the reconciling word ; 

(live power and unction from above, 
Where'er the joyful sound is heard. 

3 Be darkness, at thy coming, light ; 
Confusion — order, in thy path ; 

Souls without strength, inspire with might; 
Bid mercy triumph over wrath. 

4 Baptize the nations; far and nigh 
The triumphs of the cross record ; 
The name of Jesus glorify, 

Till every kindred call him Lord.

AUTHOR of faith, eternal Word, 
Whose Spirit breaihes the active flame; 
Faith, like its finisher and Lord, 
To-day, as yesterday, the same : — 

2 To thee our humble hearts aspire, 
And ask the gift unspeakable ; 
Increase in us the kindred fire. 

In us the work of laith fulfil. 

3 By faith we know thee strong to save ; 
(Sav • us, a present Saviour thou :) 
Whate'er we hope, by faith we have ; 
Future, and past, subsisting now. 

4 To him that in thy Name believes. 
Eternal life with thee is given ; 
Into himself he all receives, — 
Pardon, and holiness, and heaven.

Unseen by reason's gUmm'ring ray, 
With strong commanding evidence, 
Their heavenly origin display.

The' Invisible appears in sight, 
And God is seen by mortal eye.

L. M. 



BEHOLD, the heathen waits to know 
The joy the Gospel will bestow ; 
The exiled captive to receive 
The freedom Jesus has to give. 

2 Come, let us, with a grateful heart. 
In this blest labour share a part ; 

Our prayers and off" 'rings gladly bring 
To aid the triumphs of our King. 

3 Our hearts exult in songs of praise, 
That we have seen these latter days, 
When our Redeemer shall be known. 
Where Satan long hath held his throne. 

4 Where'er his hand liath spread the skieA. 
Sweet incense to his Name shall rise ; 
And slave and freeman, G-reek and Jew, 
By sov'reign grace be form'd anew. 

D— O Commencing the labours of the day. L. il. 

EORTH in thy name, Lord, I go, 
My daily labours to pursue ; 
Thee, only thee, resolved to know. 
In all I think, or speak, or do. 

2 Thee will I set at my right hand. 
Whose eyes mine inmost substance see ; 
And labour on at thy command. 

And offer all my works to thee. 

3 Give me to bear thy easy yoke, 
And every moment watch and pray; 
And still to things eternal look. 
And hasten to thy glorious day : — 

4 For thee delightfully employ 
Whate'er thy bounteous grace has given ; 
And run my course with even joy. 

And closely walk with thee to heaven.

On thy own gifts and graces feusr. 

And make the contrite heart thy heaven.

Our sacrifice of praise approve ; 

And treasure up our gracious t^ars, 
Who rest in thy redeeming love.

And bid us freely eat and drink 
Thy dainties, and be satisfied.

SOV'REIGX of worlds! display thy power; 
Be this thy Zion's favour'd hour ; 
Bid the bright morning star, arise, 
And point the nations to the skies. 

2 Set up thy throne where Satan reigns, 
On Africs shore, on India's plains, 

On lonely isles and lands unknown, 
And make the nations all thine own. 

3 Speak ! and the world shall hear thy voice ; 
Speak! and the desert shall rejoice ; 
Scatter the gloom of heathen night, 

And bid all nations hail the light. 

^O ^ Patient thankfulness and trust. L. M. 

ETERNAL beam of Light divine, 
Fountain of unexhausted love ;

Through earth beneath, and heaven above; — 

2 Jesus, the weary wand'rer's rest, 
Give me thy easy yoke to bear ; 
With steadfast patience arm my breast, 
With spotless love and lowly fear. 

3 Thankful I take the cup from thee, 
Prepared and mingled by thy skill : 
Though bitter to the taste it be, 
powerful the wounded soul to heal. 

4 Be thou, Rock of ages, nigh! 

So shall each murm'ring thought be gone. 
And grief, and fear, and care shall fly. 
As clouds before the mid-day sun. 

5 Speak to my warring passions, — Peace ; 
Say to my trembling heart, — Be still ; 
Tliy power my strength an-l fortress is. 
For all things serve thy sov'reign will.

Thy boasted victory, grave ?

MY soul, with humble fervour raise 
To God the voice of grateful praise, 
And all my ransom' d powers combine, 
To bless his attributes divine. 

2 Deep on my heart let mem'ry trace 
His acts of mercy and of grace; 
Who, with a Father's tender care, 
Saved me when sinking in despair ; 

3 Gave my repentant soul to prove 
The joy of his forgiving love ; 
Pour'd balm into my bleeding breast. 
And led my weary feet to rest.

I'^CILLIOXS within thy courts have met.

'j heir faces Zionward were set, — 
V ows with their lips to thee they vow'd. 



2 But thou, soul-searching God ! hast known 
The hearts of all that bent the knee ; 

And hast accepted those alone. 
Who in the spirit worshipp'd thee. 

3 People of many a tribe and tongue, 
Of various languages and lands, 
Have heard thy truth, thy glory sung, 
And ofifer'd prayer with holy hands. 

4 And not a prayer, a tear, a sigh, 
Hath fail'd this day some suit to gain ; 
To those in trouble thou wert nigh ; 
Not one hath sought thy face in vain. 

5 Thy poor were bountifully fed, — 
Thy chasten'd sons have kiss'd the rod ; 
Thy mourners have been comforted. — 
The pure in heart have seen their God. 

6 Yet one prayer more ; — and be it one, 
In which both heaven and earth accord, — 
Fulfil thy promise to thy Son : 

Let all that breathe call Jesus Lord ! 

364 Only hy faith. L. M. 

LORD, I despair myself to heal ; 
I see my sin, but cannot feel ;

And bid the' obedient waters flow. 

2 'lis thine a heart of flesh to give; 
Thy gifts I only can receive : 
Here, then, to thee I all resign ; 

To draw, redeem, and seal, — are thine. 

3 With simple faith, on thee I call, — 
My light, my life, my Lord, my all: 

I wait the moving of the pool; 

1 wait the word tliat speaks me whole. 

4 Speak, gracious Lord, — my sickness cure,— 
Make my infected nature pure : 

Peace, righteousness, and joy impart, 
And pour thyself into my heart ! 

i09 Welcome to Church fellowship. L M. 

BRETHREN in Christ, and well beloved, 
To Jesus and his servants dear. 
Enter, and show yourselves approved; 
Enter, and find that God is here. 

2 Welcome from earth : lo, the right hand 
Of fellowship to you we give: 

With open hearts and hands we stand, 
And you in Jesus' name receive. 

3 Jesus, attend ; thyself reveal ; 
Are we not met in thy great name? 
Thee in the midst we wait to feel ; 
We wait to catch the spreading flame. 

4 Truly our fellowship below 
With thee and with the Father is : 
In thee eternal life we know, 
And heaven's unutterable bhss. 

o Though but in part we know thee here, 
We wait thy coming from above; 
And we shall then behold thee near, 
And be forever lost in love.

MIGHT my lot be cast with these, 
The least ot" Jesus' witnesses ; 
that my Lord would count me meet 
To wash his dear disciples' feet !

Thou know'st 'tis all my lieart's desire, 
Freely what I receive to give. — 

The servant of thy Church to live : — 

3 After my lowly Lord to go, 
And wait upon thy samts below; 
Enjoy the grace to angels given, 
And serve the royal heirs of heaven. 

4 Lord, if I now thy drawings feel, 
And ask according to thy will. 
Confirm the prayer, the seal impart, 
And speak the answer to my heart. 

5 Tell me, or thou shalt never go, — 
Thy prayer is heard ; it shall be so : 
The word hath pass'd thy lips, and I 
Shall with thy people Hve and die.

OTHOU, who all things canst control. 
Chase this dread slumber from my soul ; 
"With joy and fear, with love and awe, 
Give me to keep thy perfect law. 

2 may one beam of thy blest light 
Pierce through, dispel, the shade of night : 
Touch my cold breast with heavenly fire ; 
With holy, conqu'ring zeal inspire. 

3 For zeal I sigh, for zeal I pant ; 
Yet heavy is my soul, and famt : 
With steps unwav'ring, undismay'd, 
Give me in all thy paths to tread.

But ah ! my zeal soon dies away.

Expect with joy thy face to see : 
Because thou didst for sinners die, 
Jesus, in death remember me !

I may the welcome word receive ; 
My body with my charge lay down, 
And cease at once to work and live. 



4 Walk with me through the dreadful shade, 
And, certified that thou art mine, 

My spirit, calm and undismay'd,

Not idly pass, nor fruitless be ;

ALMIGHTY Maker of my frame, 
Teach me the measure of my days; 
Teach ine to know how frail I am, 
And spend the remnant to thy praise. 

2 My days are shorter than a span ; 
A little point my life appears ; 
How frail, at best, is dying man ! 
How vain are all his hopes and fears 1 

3 Vain his ambition, noise, and show ; 
Yain are the cares which rack his mind : 
He heaps up treasures mix'd with wo, 
And dies, and leaves them all behind.

Earth's fleeting treasures I resign, 
And fix my hope on thee alone.

When all is peaceful and serene, 
And when the sun, with cloudless ray, 
Sheds mellow lustre o'er the scene 1 

2 Such is the Christian's parting hour , 
So peacefully he smks to rest ; 

When ftiith, endued fioin heaven with power, 
Sustains and cheers his languid breast. 

3 Mark but that radiance of his eye, 
That smile upon his wasted cheek ; 
That tell us of his glory nigh, 

In language that no tongue can speak. 

4 A beam from heaven is sent to cheer 
The pilgrim on his gloomy road ; 
And angels are attending near, 
To bear him to their bright abode. 

5 Who would not wish to die like these 
Whom God's own Spirit deigns to bless ? 
To sink into that soft repose. 
Then wake to perfect happiness ?

HOW blest the righteous when he dies ! 
Wiien sinks a weary soul to rest I 
How mildly beam the closing eyes ! 
How gently heaves the' expiring breast I 

2 So fades a summer cloud away ; 

So sinks the gale when storms are o'er ; 
So gently shuts the eye of day ; 
So dies a wave along the shore. 

3 A holy quiet reigns around, — 

A calm which life nor death destroys ; 
And naught, disturbs that peace profound 
Which his unfetter'd soul enjoys. 

4 Farewell, conflicfing hopes and fears, 
Where lights and shades alternate dwell I 
How biiglit the' unchanging morn appears! 
Farewell, inconstant world, farewell ! 

5 Lift-'s labour done, as sinks the clay,— 
Light fi'oni its load the spirit flies, 

While heaven and earth combine to say, — 
How blest the righteous when he dies !

Wiuit foe can make our souls afraid ? 

2 Yea, though the earth's foundations rock, ' 
And mountains down the gulf be roU'd, ! 
His people smile amid the shock : ; 
They look beyond tliis transient world. 

3 There is a river pure and bright, 
Whose streams make glad the heavenly 
^Vhere in eternity of light [plains ; 
The city of our God remains. 

4 Built by the word of his commanl, | 
With his unclouded presence blest, ! 
Firm as his throne the bulwarks stand ; 
There is our home, our hope, our rest.

LORD, with a grieved and aching heart. 
To thee I look, to thee I cry : 
Supply my wants ; thy grace impart ; 
O iiear an humble prisoner's sigh ! 

2 On my sad heart the burden lies ; 
No human power can ease the load ; 
My num'rous sins against me rise, 
And far remove me from my God. 

3 Break, break, Lord, these tyrant chains. 
And set the struggling captive free; 
lletleem from everlasting pains, 

And bring me safe to heaven and thee. 

<ol lie careikfor you. L. M. 

PEACE, troubled soul, thou need'st not 
Thy great Provider still is near; [fear; 
Who fed thee last will feed thee still : 
Be calm, and sink into his will 



2 The Lord, who built the caith and sky, 
In mercy stoops to hear thy cry ; 

His promise all may freely claim : 
Ask and receive in Jesus' name. 

3 Without reserve give Christ your heart ; 
Let him his righteousness impart ; 

Then all things else he'll freely give ; 
With him you all things shall receive. 

4 Thus shall the soul be truly blest, 
That seeks in God his only rest : 
May I that happy person be, 

In time and in eternity.

Ready the outcasts to receive : 
Though all my simpleness I own, 
And all my thoughts to thee are known. 

2 Ah ! wherefore did I ever doubt ? 
Thou wilt in nowise cast me out, — 
A helpless soul, that comes to thee 
With only .sin and misery. 

3 Lord, I am sick, — my sickness cure : 

1 want, — do thou enrich the poor : 
Under thy mighty hand I stoop, 
lift the abject sinner up. 

4 Lord, I am blind, — be thou my sight : 
Lord, I am weak, — be thou my might : 
A helper of the helpless be, 

And let me find my all in thee.

Invade thy bounds; no mortal woes 
Can reach the peaceful sleeper here. 
While angels watch the soft repose. 

3 So Jesus slept ; — God's dying Son 
Pass'd through the grave, and blest the bed; 
Rest here, blest saint, till from his throne 
The morning break, and pierce the shade. 

4 Break from his throne, illustrious mornj 
Attend, earth! his sov'reign word; 
Restore thy trust — a glorious form — 
Call'd to ascend and meet the Lord.

Inspire me with thy power and peace, 
And pardon on my conscience seal

On tliee, my Saviour and my God ! 
Well may this glowintr heart rejoice, 
And tell its raptures all abroad.

To Him ^vho merits all my love ; 
Let cheerful anthems fill his house, 
While to that sacred shrine I move. 

3 'Tis done, the great transaction's done;

He drew me, and I foliow'd on, 
Charm'd to confess the voice divine. 

4 Now rest, my long-divided heart ; 
Fix'd on this blissful centre, rest ; 
Nor ever from thy Lord depart : 
With him of every good possess'd, 

5 High Heaven, that heard the solemn vow, 
That vow renew'd shall daily hear, 

'J'ill in life's latest hour I bow, 
And bless in death a bond so dear.

"lyrOT here, as to the prophet's eye, 
-L ' The Lord upon his throne appears ; 
Nor seraph-tongues responsive cry, 
Hoi}'! thiiceholy! in our ears: — 

2 Yet Grod is present in this place, 
Veil'd in serener majesty ; 

So full of ^lory, truth, and grace, 
That faith alone such light can see. 

3 Nor, as lie in the temple taught, 
Is Christ within these walls reveal'd, 
When blind, and deaf, and dumb were 

brought, 
Lepers and lame — and all were heal'd : — 

4 Yet here, when two or three shall meet. 
Or thronging multitudes are found, 

All may sit down at Jesus' feet, 
And hear from him the joyful sound. 

O— I) Evermore give us this bread. L. M. 

FATHER, supply my every need : 
Sustain the life thyself hast given; 
grant the never-failing bread, — 
The manna that comes down from heaven. 

2 The gracious fruits of righteousness, 
Thy blessings' unexliausted store, 

In me abundantly increase, 
Nor ever let me hunger more. 

3 Let me no more, in deep complaint, 
My leanness, my leanness ! cry : 
Alone consumed with pinijig want, 
Of all my Father's children I. 

4 The painful thirst, the fond desire, 
Thy joyous presence shall remove ; 
But my fnll soul shall still require 

A whole etemify of love. 



JESUS, thou everkstiuir King, 
Accept the tribute which we bring; 
Accept thy well-deserved rmown. 
And wear our praises as thy crown. 

2 Let every act of Avorsliip be 
Like our espousals, Lord, to thee : 
Like the blest hour, when from above 
We first received the pledge of love. 

3 The gladness of that happy day, 
may it ever, ever stay : 

Nor let our faith forsake its hold, 
Nor hope decline, nor love grow cold. 

4 Let every moment as it flies:, 
Increase thy praise, improve our joys, 
Till we are raised to sing thy Name, 
At the great supper of the Lamb.

And arm me with thy Spirit's might.

And timely fly from danger near; 
With rev'rence unto thee rejoice. 
And love thee with a filial fe.ir : 

3 Still hold my soul in second life, 
And sufier not my feet to slide : 
Support me in the glorious strife. 
And comfort mo on every side. 

4 give me faith, £.nd faith's increase; 
Finish the work begun in me; 
Preserve my soul in perfect peace, 
And let me always rest on ihec.

THE perfocr world, by Atlam trod, 
Was tlie first temple built by God ;

He spake, and, lo ! the work was done. 

2 He hung its starry roof on high, 
The broad expanse of azure sky ; 

He spread its pavement, green and bright, 
And curtain'd it with morning light. 

3 The mountains in their places stood, 
The sea, the sky ; and all was good ; 
And when its fiist puie praises ranr*, 
The morning stars together sang. 

4 Lord, 'tis not ours to make the sea, 
And earth, and sky, a house for thee ;

2 'Tis useless toil O'lr stores to keep, —

Unless the Lord, who reigns on high,

¥HAT various hindrances we meet 
In coming to a mercy-seat ; 
Yet who that knows the worth of prayer, 
But wishes to be often there ?

Prayer climbs the ladder Jacob saw; 
Gives exercise to faith and love; 
Brings every blessing from above.

And Satan trembles when he sees 

The weakest saint upon his knees.

TIiou canst the saving grace impart; 
'j'hou canst this instant now ibrgive. 
And stamp thine image on my heart.

408 The only plea. L. M. 

JESUS, the sinner's friend, to thee, 
Lost and undone, for aid I flee ; 
Weary of earth, myself, and sin : 
Open thine arms, and take me in. 

2 Pity and heal my sin-sick soul ; 
'Tis thou alone canst make me whole ; 
Dark, till in me thine image shine. 
And lost, I am, till thou art mine. 

3 At last I own it cannot be 
That I should fit myself for thee : 
Here, then, to thee I all resign ; 
Thine is the work, and only thine. 

4 What shall I say thy grace to move ? 
Lord, I am sin, — but thou art love : 

1 give up every plea beside, — 
Lord, I am lost — but thou hast died. 

28 i The divine Teacher. L. M. 

HOW sweetly flow'd the gospel's sound 
From lips of gentleness and grace, 
While list'ning thousands gather'd round, 
And joy and rev'rence fill'd the place, 

2 From heaven he came, of heaven he spoke, 
To heaven he led his foll'wers' way ; 
Dark clouds of gloomy night he broke, 
Unveiling an immortal day. 

3 Come, wand'rers, to my Father's home ; 
Come, all ye weary ones, and rest. 

Yes, sacred Teacher ! we will come, 
Obey, and be forever blest. 

4 Decay, then, tenements of dust 1 
Pillars of earthly pride, decay ! 

A nobler mansion waits the just, 
And Jesus has prepared the way. 

4»)() Sdlvittion only by grace through faith. L. M. 

Ty"E have no outward righteousness, 
' * No merits or good works, to plead ; 
^Ve only can be saved by grace ; 
Thy grace, Lord, is free indeed. 

2 Save us by grace, through faith alone, — 
A faith thou must thyself impart ; 

A faith that would by works be shown, 
A faith that purifies the heart : 

3 A faith that doth the mountains move, 
A faith that shows our sins forgiven, 

A faith that sweetly works by love. 
And ascertains our claim to heaven. 

4 This is the faith we humbly seek. 
The faith in thy all-cleansing blood : 
That faith which doth for sinners speak, 
let it speak us up to God I 

i O.J Remember Calvary ! L. M. 

MY sufi'rings all to thee are known, 
Tempted in every point like me; 
Regard my grief, regard thine own: 
Jesus, remember Calvary ! 



2 For whom didst thou the cross endure ? 
Who nail'd thy body to the tree? 

Did not thy death my life procure ? 

let thy mercy answer me. 

3 Art thou not touch'd with human wo ? 

1 lath pity left the Son of man ? 
Dost thou not all my sorrows know, 
And claim a share in all my pain ? 

4 Thou wilt not break a bruised reed, 
Or quench the smallest spark of grace, 
Till through the soul thy power is spread, 
Thy all-victorious righteousness. 

5 The day of small and feeble things, 
I know thou never wilt despise ; 

1 know, with healing in his wings, 
The Sun of righteousness shall rise, 

41 ( Only Jenm. L. M. 

WHEN, gracious Lord, when shall it bo 
That I shall find my all in thee ? 
The fulness of thy promise prove, — 
The seal of thine eternal love ? 

2 A poor bhnd child I wander here. 
If haply I may feel thee near : 

dark! dark! dark! I still must say, 
Amidst the blaze of gospel day. 

3 Thee, only thee, I fain would find, 
And cast the world and flesh behind ; 
Thou, only thou, to me be given, 

Of all thou hast in earth or heaven. 

4 When from the arm of flesh set free, 
Jesus, my soul shall fly to thee : 
Jesus, when I have lost my all, 

1 shall upon thy bosom fall. 

3G9 Shut up in unbelief. L. M. 

LIG-HT of the Gentile world, appear ; 
Command the blind thy rays to see : 
Our darkness chase, our sorrows cheer. 
And set the plaintive pris'ner free. 

2 Me, me, who still in darkness sit. 
Shut up in sin and unbelief, 
Deliver from this gloomy pit, — 
This dungeon of despairing grief. 

3 Open mine eyes the Lamb to know, 
Who bears the gen'ral sin away; 
And to my ransom'd spirit show 

The glories of eternal day. 

OOU Deprecating eternal death. L. M. 

FATHER, if I may call thee so, 
Regard my fearful heart's desire : 
Remove this load of guilty wo. 
Nor let me in my sins expire. 

2 I tremble, lest the wrath divine. 
Which bruises now my wretched soul, 
Should bruise this wretched soul of mine 
Long as eternal ages roll. 

3 I deprecate that death alone, — 
That endless banishment from thee; 
save, and give me to thy Son, 
Who sufier'd, wept, and bled for me.

AWAKED from sin's delusive sleep, 
My heavy guilt I feel, and weep : 
Beneath a weight of woes oppress'd,

Look down upon my soul in love ; — 
That smile shall sweeten all my pain, 
And make my soul rejoice again.

Poor and unworthy though we be; 
Pardon and sanctify us all, —

To fear and follow thy commands ; 

take our hearts, our hearts are thine; 
Accept the service of our hands.

Our Master's voice will we obey; 

Toil in the vineyard here, and bear 
The ht-at and burden of the day.

In heaven, at thy right hand, prepare; 
And till we see thee face to face, 

Be all our conversation there.

Since Christ did in the flesh appear, 
His tender mercies ever last, 
And still his healing power is here.

And not regard the sin-sick toul ? 
The sin-sick soul he loves much more, 
And surely he will make it whole. 

3 All my disease, my every sin, 
To thee, Jesus, I confess : 

In pardon, Lord, my cure begin. 
And perfect it in holiness.

Now, Saviour, now, on me bestow ; 
And purge my conscience with thy blood, 
And wash my nature white as snow.

By base desires I wrong'd thy love, 
Ajid forced tliy mercy to remove. 
2 Yet, ihe riches of thy grace! 
Thou, who hast seen my evil ways. 
Wilt freely my backslidings heal. 
And pardon on my conscience seal. 



3 Yea, for thy truth and mercy's sake. 
My comfort thou wilt give me back ; 
And lead me on from grage to grace, 
In all the paths of righteousness. 

4 Till throughly saved my new-born soul, 
And perfectly by faith made whole, 
Shall bright in thy full image rise. 

To share thy glory in the skies.

Satan and sin are always near, — 
Thee may 1 always nearer feel.

Might with an even flame aspire ; 
Pride in its earliest motions find. 
And mark the risings of desire. 

3 that my tender soul might fly 
The first abhorr'd approach of ill ; 
Quick as the apple of an eye. 

The slightest touch of sin to feel. 

4 Till thou anew my soul create. 

Still may I strive, and watch, and pray ; 
Humbly and confidently wait, 
And long to see the perfect day.

That holiness I long to feel ; 
That full divine conformity 
To all my Saviour's righteous will. 

2 See, Lord, the travail of thy soul 
Accomplish'd m the change of mine ; 
And plunge me, every wdiit made whole. 
In all the depths of love divine. 

3 On thee, God, my soul is sfay'd, 
And waits to prove thine utmost will ; 
The promise by thy mercy made. 
Thou canst, thou wilt, in me fulfil. 

4 No more I stagger at thy power. 

Or doubt thy truth, which cannot move: 
Hasten the long-expecfed hour. 
And bless me with thy periect love.

l.)4 The King of g or y. L. M. 

OUR Lord is risen from the dc.id ; 
Oar J»>>us is p-one up on high ; 
The powtTS of hell are captive leJ, — 
DiaggM to the portals of the sk}^ : 
There his triumphal chariot waits, 
And angels chant the soUmin lay; — 
Lift up y<ni- htMd«. ye heaveiilv gates; 
Ye everlastirg doors, give vi'ay 1 

2 Loo-e all your Lars of mas-3^ light, 
And wide unfold tie' ethereal scene; 
He claims t'ee mansions ns his right; 
Receive the King of glor}"- in! 

Who is thf K.ng of glory ? Who ? 
The Lord, that all our foes o'.Mcamo; — 
The world, sin, death, and hell o'erthrew; — 
And Jesus is the Conqu'ror's name. 

3 Lo ! his triumphal chariot waits, 
Ami angels chant the solemn lay ; 
Life up your heads, y^ heavenly gtites; 
Ye everlasting doors, give way ! 
AVho is the King of glory ? Who ? 

The Lord, of glorious power possess'd; — 
The King of saints and angels too; — 
God over all, forever blest ! 

4—0 noTpe springing up. L. M. 

MY soul before thee prostrate lies ; 
To thee, her Source, my spirit flies; 
My wants I mourn, my chains I see ; 
O let thy presence set me free. 

2 Jesus, vouchsafe my heart and will 
With thy meek lowliness to fill ; 

No more her power let natui'e boast, 
But in thy will may mine be lost. 

3 Already springing hope I feel, — 
God will destroy the power of hell, 
And, from a land of wars and pain. 
Lead me where peace and safety reign. 

4 One only care my soul shall know, — 
Father, all thy commands to do ; 

And feel, what endless years shall prove, 
That thou, my Lon', my God, art love. 

UO T7ie /leaveiis Oehire hia o^ory. L. M, 

THE "pacions firmament on high, 
With all the blue ethereal sky, 
An 1 spanglf'd heavens, a shining frame, 
Tht'ir gri'ut Original proclaim; 
Th«'' unwearied sun, from day to day, 
Dotli his Creator's power display, 
And publishes to every land 
The work of an Almighty Hand. 

2 Soon as the evening shades prevad, 
The moon takes up the wondrous tale, 
And nightly, to the list'ning earth, 
Repeats the story of her birth ; 
While all the stars that round her burn, 
And all the planets in their turn, 
Confirm the tidings as they roll, 
And spread the truth from pole to pole. 



3 What, though in solemn s-ilenco all 
Move round tliC dark terresfrial ball; 
What, though no real voice nor sound 
Amid tlie rad a;)t orbs be found; 
In reason's ear they all rejoice. 
And utter forth a glorious voice ; 
Forever singing as they shine. 
The Hand that made us is divine. 

i iL The Lord is my rrfige. 



L. M. 

¥nY is my heart with grief oppress'd? 
Can all the pains I fieel or fea-. 
Make thee, my soul, forget thy rest — 
Forget that God, thy God, is near? 

2 Hast thou not often call'd thr. Lord 
Thy refuge, thy almighty fiiend ? 
And canst thou fear to trust that word 
On which thy hopes of heaven depend? 

3 Lord, form my temper to tliy will ; 
If thou my faith and patience prove. 
May every painful stroke fulfil 

Thy purposes of faithful love. 

4 may this weak, this fainting mind, 
A Father's hand, adoring, see ; 
Confess thee just, and wise, and kin;1. 
And trust thy word, and cleave to thee. 

794 It is I ; he not ('/raid. L. M. 

¥HEjSr power divine in mortal form 
Hush'd with a word the raging stor; 
In soothing accents Jesus said, — 
Lo, it is I; be not afraid. 

2 So when in silence nature sleeps. 
And lonely watch the mourner keeps. 
One thought shall every pang remove — 
Trust, feeble man, thy Maker's love. 

3 God calms the tumult and the storm; 
He rules the seraph and the worm: 
No creature is by him foryot 

Of those who know, or know him not. 

4 And when the last dread liour shall com 
And shudd'ring nature M'ait her doom, 
This voice shall wake the pious dead, — 
Lo, it is I ; be not afraid. 

oo/» Suhn in GVead. and a good Fhyficvni 

Dlb there. L. M. 

DEEP are the wounds which sin has made ; 
Where shall the sinner find a cure? 
In vain, alas! is nature's aid ; 
The work exceeds her utmost power. 

2 But can no sov'reign balm be found. 
And is no kind physician nigh. 

To ease the pain, and heal the wound, 
Ere fife and hope foiever fly ? 

3 There is a great Physician n ar; 
Look up, fainting soul, and 1 ve; 
See, in his heavenly smilfs, {.p-.ear 
Such help as nature cannot give. 

4 See, in the Saviour's dying blood, 
Life, health, and bliss, abundant flow; 
And in that sacrificial flood 

A balm for all thy grief and woe.

HAPPY the meek, wliose gentle breast, 
Clear as tlic suininor's evening ray, 
Calm as the regions of the blest, 
Enjoys on earth celestial day. 

2 His heart no broken friendships sting ; 
No jars his peaceful tent invade; 

He rests beneath the' Almighty's wing, 
Hostile to none — of none afraid. 

3 Spirit of grace ! all meek and mild, 
Inspire our heuit^, — our souls possess; 
Ilepel each passion rude and wild, 
And bless us, as we aim to bless. 

lO.I The fountain gitshing from Ms aule. L. M. 

YE that pass by, behold the Man — 
The Man of griefs — condemn'd for you; 
The Lamb of God, for sinners slain, 
Weeping to Calvary pursue. 

2 To us our own Barabbas give, — 
Away with him, — (they loudly cry:) 
Away with him, not fir to live, — 
The vile seducer crucify ! 

3 His sacred limbs they stretch, they tear; 
With nails they fasten to 'the wood; 

His sacred limbs, exposed and bare, 
Or only cover'd with his blood. 

4 Behold his temples, crown'd with thorn ; 
His bleeding hands, extended wide ; 

His streaming feet, transfix'd and torn ; 
The fountain gushing from his side 1 

5 thou dear suCTring Son of God, 
How doth thy heart to sinners move; 
Sprinkle on us thy precious blood. 
And melt us with thy dying love. 

41 ij Tlie mcrifice of a broken heart. L. M. 

THOUGH I have grieved thy Spirit, Lord, 
Thy help and comfort still afford ; 
And let a wretch come near thy throne 
'i o plead the merits of thy Son. 

2 A broken heart, my God, my King, 
Is all the sacrifice I bring; 

Thou God of grace, wilt thou despise 
A broken heart for sacrifice ? 

3 My soul lies humbled in the du?t. 
And owns the dreadful sentence just : 
Look down, Lord, with pitying eye, 
And save a soul condemn'd to die. 

--:06 Tlie dead and the living. L. M. 

WHERE are the dead? — In heaven or 
hell 
Their disembodied spirits dwell; 
Tlieir perish'd forms, in bonds of clay. 
Reserved until the judgment-day. 

2 Where are the living ? on the ground 
Where prayer is heard and mercy found; 
Where, in the compass of a span, 
The mortal makes the' immortal man. 



3 Then, timely warn'd, let us begin 
To follow Christ and flee from sin; 
Daily grow up in liim our Head, 
Lord of the living and the dead.

From Calvary, in brightest rays. 

It glow'd to guide benighted man. 

3 Its sacred shrine it fixes there, 
Where two or thiee are met to raise 
Their holy hands in humble prayer, 
Or tune their hearts to grateful praise. 

4 Be this, Lord, that honour'd place, — 
The house of God, the gate of heaven ; 
And may the fulness of thy grace 

To all who here shall meet be given. 

5 And hence, in spirit, may we soar 

To those bright courts where seraphs bendv 
Witli awe like theirs, on earth adore, 
Till with their anthems ouis shall blend.

"75 The glorious prediciiona. L, M. 

THE Law and Prophets all foretold 
That Christ should die, and leave the 
grave ; 
Gather the world into his fold, 
The Church of Jews and Gentiles save. 

2 Yet, by the prince of darkness bound, 
The nations still are wrapt in night: 
They never heard the joyful sound ; 
They never saw the Gospel light. 

3 Light of the world, again appear. 
In mildest majesty of grace. 

And bring the great salvation near 
And claim our whole apostate race. 

J 4o His dying cry, L. M. 

^rpiS finished ! so the Saviour said, 

J- And meekly bow'd his dying head: 
'Tis finished ! yes, the race is run ; 
The battle fought; the vict'ry won. 

2 'Tis finish'd ! let the joyful sound 
Be lieard the spacious earth around: 
'Tis finish'd I let the echo fly 
Through heaven and hell, through earth 
and sky. 

1 i Expiring on the cross. L. M. 

EXTENDED on a cursed tree, 
Cover'd with dust, and sweat, and blood, 
See there, the King of glory see ! 
Sinks and expires the Son of God. 

2 Who, who, my Saviour, this hath done? 
"Who could thy sacred body wound ? 
No guilt thy spotless heart hath known, — 
No guile hath in thy lips been found. 

.3 I, I alone have done the deed ; 

' Tis I thy sacred flesh have torn ; 

My sins have caused thee. Lord, to bleed, — 

Pointed the nail, and fixed the thorn. 

4 For me the burden to sustain 

Too great, on thee, my Lord, was laid: 
To heal me, thou hast borne the pain; 
To bless me, thou a curse wast made. 

5 My Saviour, how shall I proclaim, 
How pay, the mighty debt I owe ? 
Let all I have, and all I am. 
Ceaseless, to all, thy gloi-y show. 

G Still let thy tears, thy groans, thy sighs, 
O'erflow my eye??, and heave my breast, 
Till, loosed from flesh and earth, I rise, 
And ever in thy bosom rest. 

774 Ifoije in God. L. M. 

n OD of my strength, in thee alone 
y^ A refuge from distress I see ; 
why hast thou thine aid withdrawn ? 
Why hast thou, Lord, forsaken me ? 

2 let thy light my footsteps guide ; 
Thy love and truth my Spirit fill; 
That in thy house I may reside. 
And worship at thy holy hill. 



3 Then will I at thine altar bend ; 
My harp its softest notes shall raise. 
And from my lips to heaven ascend 
The song of thankfulness and praise. 

4 Why then, my soul, art thou cast down ? 
Why art thou anxious and distress'd ? 
Hope thou in God, his mercy own, 

For I shall yet enjoy his rest. 

4dO T7ie Lord o^ir righteousness. L. M. 

LET not the wise their wisdom boast, 
The mighty glory in their might; 
The rich in flatt'ring riches trust. 
Which take their everlasting flight 

2 The rush of num'rous years bears down 
The most gigantic strength of man ; 
And where is all his wisdom gone, 
When, dust, he turns to dust again ? 

3 One only gift can justify 

The boasting soul that knows his God; 
When Jesus doth his blood apply, 
I glory in his sprinkled blood. 

4 The Lord my righteousness I praise, 

1 triumph in the love divine ; 

The wisdom, wealth, and strength of grace, 
In Christ to endless ages mine. 

496 27ie land of rest. L. M 

THY loving Spirit, Lord, alone 
Can lead me forth, and make me free ; 
The bondage break in which I groan, 
And set my heart at liberty. 

2 Now let thy Spirit bring me in, 
And give thy servant to possess 
The land of rest from inbred sin, — 
The land of perfect holiness. 

3 Lord, I believe thy power the same; 
The same thy truth and grace endure ; 
And in thy blessed hands I am, 

And trust thee for a perfect cure. 

4 Come, Saviour, come, and make me whole; 
Entirely all my sins remove ; 

To perfect health restore my soul, — 
To perfect holiness and love. 

UdO On changing place of abode. L. M^ 

SOLE Sov'reign of the earth and skies, 
Supremely good, supremely wise, 
Fix thou the place of our abode. 
But let it still be near our God. 

2 On earth we weary pilgrims roam, 
N(jr find, nor hope, a lasting home; 
We seek a house not made with hands, 
A heavenly house, which ever stands. 

3 Yet while we sojourn here below. 
Let streams of mercy round us flow; 
And when our destined race is run, 
Assign us mansions near thy throne.

|4o Dijhig, rising, reigning. L. M. 

HE dies 1 the Friend of sinners dies ! 
Lo ! Salem's daughters weep around ; 
A solemn darkness veils the skies, 
A sudden trembling shakes the ground : 
Come, saints, and drop a tear or two 
For him who groan'd beneath your load : 
He shed a thousand drops for you, — 
A thousand drops of richer blood. 

2 Here's love and grief beyond degree : 
The Lord of glory dies for man 1 

But lo 1 what sudden joys we see : 
Jesus, the dead, revives again. 
The rising God forsakes the tomb ; 
(In vain the tomb forbids his rise ;) 
Cherubic legions guard him home. 
And shout liim Avelcome to the skies. 

3 Break off your tears, ye saints, and tell 
How high your great Deliv'rer reigns; 
Sing how he spoil'd the hosts of hell, 
And leil the monster death in chains: 
Say, Live forever, wondrous King! 

Boi n to redeem, and strong to save ; 
"Tiien ask the monster, Where's thy sting? 
And, Where's thy vict'ry, boasting grave? 

( 4o A hlefsing for those icho mourn. L. M 

DEEM not that they are blest alone 
Whose lives a peaceful tenor keep ; 
For God, who pities man, has shown 
A blessing for the eyes that weep. 

2 The light of smiles shall fill again 
The lids that overflow with tears ; 
And weary hours of woe and pain 
Are promises of happier years. 

3 There is a day of sunny rest 
For every dark and troubled night; 
Though gii(^f may bide an evening guest, 
Yet joy shall come with early light. 

4 Nor let the good man's trust depart, 
Through life its common gifts deny, — 
Though with a pierced and broken heart. 
And spurn'd of men, he goes to die. 

5 For God has mark'd each sorrowing day 
And number'd every secret tear; 

And heaven's eternal bliss shall pay 
For all his children suffer here.

¥[IERE WITH, Lord, shall I draw near 
And bow myself before thy face? 
How in thy purer eyes appear ? 
What shall I bring to gain thy grace ? 

2 Will gifts delight the Lord Most High ? 
Will multiplied oblations please? 
Thousands of rams his favoin* buy, 

Or slaughter'd hecatombs appease ? 

3 Can these avert the wrath of God ? 
Can these wash out my guilty stain? 
Rivers of oil, and seas of blood, 
Alas! they all must flow in vain. 



4 Who would himself to thee approve, 
Must take the path thyself hast show'd ; 
Justice pursue, and mercy love, 

And humbly walk by faith with God. 

5 But though my life henceforth be thine, 
Present for past can ne'er atone : 
Though I to thee the whole resign, 

1 only give thee back thine own. 

6 Guilty I stand before thy face; 
On me I feel thy wrath abide ;

'Tis just,— but 0, thy Son hath died!

Nor take thine everlasting flight.

And shaken off my guilty iears ; 

And vex'd, and urged thee to depart, 
For many long rebellious years: 

3 Though I have most unfaithful been, 
Of all who e'er thy grace received ; 
Ten thousand times thy goodness seen ; 
Ten thousand times thy goodness grieved : 

4 Yet, 0! the chief of sinners spare, 
In honour of my great High Priest ; 
Nor in thy righteous anger swear

Or rash, or idle, or unkind?

Thy Spirit's plenitude impart; 
And all my spotless life shall tell 
The' abundance of a loving heart.

Honour the means ordain'd by thee; 
Make good our apostolic boast. 
And own thy glorious ministry.

Sent to disciple all mankind, — 

Sent to baptize into thy name, — 
We now tliy promised presence find. 

3 Father, in these reveal thy Son ; 
In these, for whom we seek thy face, 
The hidden mystery make known, 
The inward, pure, baptizing grace, 

4 Jesus, with us thou always art; 
Efl'ectual make the sacred sign ; 
The gift unspeakable impart. 
And bless the ordinance divine.

Baptizer of our spirits thou, 
The sacramental seal apply. 

And witness with the water now.

63o Parting of friends. L. M. 

THY presence, everlasting God ! 
Wide o'er all nature spreads abroad : 
Thy watchful eyes, which cannot sleep, 
In every place thy children keep. 

2 While near each other we remain, 
Thou dost our lives and souls sustain ; 
When sep'rate, happy if we share 
Thy smiles and thy paternal care. 

3 To thee we all our ways commit, 
And seek our comforts near thy feet; 
Still on our souls vouchsafe to shine, 
And guard and guide us still as thine. 

4 Bring us again to pay our vows, 
O Lord, in thy beloved house; 

Or, if that joy no more be known, 

may we meet around thy throne.

* ^" perfection f 

OGOD, thou bottomless abyss I 
Thee to perfection who can know ? 
O height immense! what words suffice 
Thy countless attributes to show? 

2 Greatness unspeakable is thine ; 
Greatness, whose uudiminish'd ray, 
When short-hved worlds are lost, shall shine- 
When earth and heaven are fled away. 

3 Unchangeable, all-perfect Lord, 
Essential hfe's unbounded sea. 

What lives and moves lives by thy word, 
It Hves, and moves, and is, from thee. 

4 High is thy power above all height ; 
Whate'er thy will decrees is done ; 
Thy wisdom, equal to thy might. 
Only to thee, God, is known I 

1. i I Figure and means of saving grace. L. M. 

AUTHOR of our salvation, thee, 
With lowly, thankful hearts, we praise; 
Author of this great mystery, — 
Figure and means of saving grace. 

2 The sacred, true, eflfectual sign. 
Thy body and thy blood it shows ; 
The glorious instrument divine. 

Thy mercy and thy strength bestows. 

3 We see the blood that seals our peace ; 
Thy pard'ning mercy we receive ; 

The bread doth visibly express 

The strength through which our spirits live. 

4 Our spirits drink a fresh supply, 
And eat the bread so freely given, 
Till, borne on eagles wings, we fly, 
And banquet with our Lord in heaven. 

UOl In sickness : Praying for recovery. L, M. 

ANGEL of covenanted grace. 
Come, and thy healing power infuse ; 
Descend in thine own time, and bless. 
And give the means their hallow'd use. 
2 Obedient to thy will alone. 
To thee in means I calmly fly: 
My life, I know, is not my own; 
To God I live, to God I die. 



3 Thy holy will be ever mine : 
If thou on earth detain me still, 

I bow, and bless the grace divine, — 

1 suffer all thy holy will. 

4 I come, if thou my strength restore. 
To serve thee with my strength renew'd ; 
Grant me but this, I ask no more — 

To spend and to be spent for God. 

lt>«7 nif supreme Divinity. L. M. 

THE day of Christ, the day of God, 
We humbly hope with joy to see, — 
Wash'd in the sanctifying blood 
Of an incarnate Deity — 

2 Who did for us his life resign : 
There is no other God but one; 
For all the plenitude Divine 
Resides in the eternal Son, 

3 Spotless, sincere, without offence, 
' O may we to his day remain, 

Who trust the blood of Christ to cleanse 
Our souls from every sinful stain. 

4 Lord, we believe the promise sure ; 
The purchased Comforter impart; 
Apply thy blood to make us pure, — 
To keep us pure in life and heait. 

5 Then let us see that day supreme, 
When none thy Godhead shall d^my, — 
Thy sov'reign majesty blaspheme, — 

Or count thee less than the Most High : 

6 When all who on their God believe, — 
Who hear thy last appearing love, — 
Shall thy consummate joy receive. 

And see thy glorious face above. 

oZO FoUoicing the Saviour. L. M- 

OTHOU, to whose all-searching sight 
The darkness shineth as the light, 
Search, prove my heart, it pants ior thee; 
burst these bonds, an'] set it free. 

2 Wash out its stains, refine its dross ; 
Nail my affections to the cross; 
Hallow each thought ; let all within 
Be clean, as thou, my Lord, art clean. 

3 If in this darksome wild I stray. 
Be thou my hght, be thou my way ; 
No foes, no violence I fear, 

No fraud, while thou, my God, art near. 

4 When rising floods my soul o'erflow, — 
When sinks my heart in waves of woe, — 
Jesus, thy timely aid impart. 

And raise my head, and cheer my heart. 

5 Saviour, where'er thy steps I see, 
Dauntless, untired, I follow thee; 

let thy hand support me still. 
And lead me to thy holy hill. 

6 If rough and thorny be the way, 
My strength proportion to my day; 
Till toil, and grief, and pain shall cease, 
Where all is calm, and joy. and peace.

816 Living to the glory of G oil. L. M. 

OTHOU ! who hast at thy command 
The hearts of all men in thy hand, 
Our -wayward, erring hearts incline 
To have no other will but thine. 

2 Our wishes, our desires, control ; 
Mould every purpose of the soul ; 
O'er all may we victorious prove 
That stands between us and thy lovo. 

3 Thrice blest will all our blessings bo, 
When we can look through them to ihee; 
When each glad heart its tribute pays 

Of love, and gratitude, and praise. 

4 And while we to thy glory live, 
May we to thee all glory give. 
Until the final summons come, 
That calls thy willing servants home. 

l024 Xational blessings. L. M. 

pREAT G-od of nations, now to thee 
VT Our hymn of gratitude we raise; 
With himible heart, and bending knee. 
We offer thee our song of praise. 

2 Thy Name we bless, almighty God, 
For all the kindness thou hast shown 
To this fair land the pilgrims trod, — 
This land we fondly call our owm. 

3 Here freedom spreads her banner wide. 
And casts her soft and hallow'd ray; 
Here thou our fathers' steps didst guide 
In safety through their dang'rous way. 

4 We praise thee that the gospel's light 
Through all our land its radiance sheds ; 
Dispels the shades of error's night, 

And heavenly blessings round us spreads. 

5 Great God, preserve us in thy fear; 
In danger .«till our guardian be; 

spread thy truth's bright precepts here: 
Let all the people worship thee. 

1G2 Tlie great Antetype. L. M. 

OTHOU whose ofiTring on the tree 
The legal ott" rings all foreshow'd, 
Borrow'd their whole efiect from thee, 
And drew their virtue from thy blood : — 

2 The blood of goats and bullocks slain, 
Could never for one sin atone ; 

To purge the guilty ofi''rer's stain. 
Thine was the work, and thine alone. 

3 These feeble types and shadows old, 
Are all in thee, the Truth, fulfill'd: 
We in thy sacrifice behold 

The substance of those ntes reveal'd. 

4 Thy meritorious suflTrings past, 
We see by faith to us brought back ; 
And, on thy grand oblation cast, 
Its saving benefits partake.

OOO The joys of penitence. I^ M. 

COME. ye sinners, to the Lonl, 
in Christ to paradise restored : 
Hi"? proff'er'd benefits enibrace, — 
Tiie plenitude of gospel grace : — 

2 A pardon written with his Mood; 
The favour and the peace of God; 
The seeing eye, the fieeling sense, 

'j he mystic joys of penitence : — 

3 The godly fear, the pleasing smart, 
The meltings of a broken heart ; 

The tears that tell your sins forgiven ; 
The sighs that waft your souls to heaven : — 

4 The guiltless shame, the sweet distress, 
The' unutterable tenderness; 

The genuine, meek humility; 

The wonder, why such love to me : — 

5 The' o'erwhelming power of saving grace, 
The sight that veils the seraph's face; 

The speechless awe that dans not move, 
And all the silent heaven of love. 

lO— TTie Saviour''s legacy. L. M. 

JESUS, we on the words depend. 
Spoken by thee while present here, — 
The Father in my name shall send 
The Holy Ghost^ the Comforter. 

2 That promise made to Adam's race, 
Now, Lord, in us, we pray, fulfil; 
And give the Spirit of thy grace, 

To teach us all thy perfect will. 

3 That heavenly Teacher of mankind, 
That Guide infallible, impart, — 

To bring thy sayings to our minil. 
And write them on each faithful heart. 

4 He only can the words apply. 
Through which we endless life possess ; 
And deal to each his legacy, — 

Our Lord's unutterable peace. 

OO.* 77ie spirit of the ancient worthies. L. >I. 

OFOR that flame of hving fire 
Which shone so bright in saints of old ; 
Which bade their souls to heaven aspire, — 
Calm in distress, in danger bold. 

2 Where is that spirit, Lord, which dwelt 
In Abrah'm's breast, and seal'd him thine? 
Which made Paul's heart with sorrow melt, 
And glow with energy divine? — 

3 That Spirit, which from age to age 
Proclaim'd thy love, and taught thy ways? 
Brighten'd Isaiah's vivid page. 
And breathed in David's hallow'd lays? 

4 Is not thy grace as mighty now 
As when Elijah felt its power ; 
When glory beam'd from Moses' brow. 
Or Job endured the trying hour? 

5 Remember, Lord, the ancient days; 
Renew thy work; thy grace restore; 
And while to thee our hearts we raise, 
On us thy Holy Spirit pour.

Obo For laicliness and purity. L. M 

JESUS, in whom the G-odhead's rays 
Beam forth with mildest majesty ; 

1 see thee full of truth and grace, 
And come for all I want to thee. 

2 Save me from pride, — the plague expel ; 
Jesus, thine humble self impart : 

O let thy mind within me dwell ; 
O give me lowhness of heart. 

3 Enter thyself, and cast out sin ; 
Thy spotless purity bestow : 

Touch me, and make the leper clean ; 
"Wash me, and I am white as snow. 

4 Sprinkle me, Saviour, with thy blood, 
And all thy gentleness is mine; 

And plunge me in the purple flood, 
Till all I am is lost in thine.

n UICKEX'D with our immortal Head, 
Vt^ Who daily. Lord, ascend with thee; 
Redeem'd from sin, and free indeed, 
We taste our glorious Uberty. 

2 Saved from the fear of hell and death, 
With joy we seek the things above; 
And all thy saints the spirit breathe 

Of power, sobriety, and love. 

3 Power o'er the world, the flesh, and sin, 
We through thy gracious Spirit feel : 

Full power the victory to win. 
And answer all thy righteous will. 

4 Pure love to God thy members find ; 
Pure love to every soul of man ; 

And in thy sober, spotless mind, 
Saviour, our heaven on earth we gain. 

KK) EolineiH. L. M. 

HOLY as thou, Lord, is none; 
Thy hohness is all thine own; 
A drop of that unbounded sea 
Is ours, — a drop derived from thee. 

2 And when thy purity we share, 
Thine only glory we declare; 
And, humbled into nothing, own, 
Holy and pure is G-od alone. 

3 Sole, self-existing God and Lord, 
By all thy heavenly hosts adored. 
Let all on earth bow down to thee, 
And own thy peerless majesty : 

4 Thy power unparallel'd confess, 
Establish'd on the Rock of peace ; 
The Rock that never shall remove, — 
The Rock of pure, almighty love.

From everlasting to everlaeting. 



L. M. 

ERE mountains rear'd their forms sublime. 
Or heaven and earth in order stood. 
Before the birth of ancient time. 
From everlasting thou art God. 
2 A thousand ages, in their flight, 
With thee are as a fleeting day ; 
Past, present, future, to thy sight 
At once their various scenes display. 



3 But our brief life's a shadowy dream, 
A passing thought, that soon is o'er, — 
That fades with morning's earliest bean 
And fills the musing mind no more. 

4 To us, Lord, the wisdom give, 
Each passing moment so to spend. 
That we at length with thee may live 
Where life and bliss shall never end. 

obZ All-m-fficiency of His grace. L. M. 

HO! every one that thirsts, draw nigh: 
'Tis God invites the fallen race : 
Mercy and free salvation buy, — 
Buy wine, and milk, and gospel grace. 

2 Come to the living waters, come ! 
Sinners, obey your Maker's call ; 
Return, ye weary wand'rers, home, 
And find his grace is free for all. 

3 See from the Rock a fountain rise; 
For you in healing streams it rolls; 
Money ye need not bring, nor price, 
Ye lab'ring, burden'd, sin-sick souls. 

4 Nothing ye in exchange shall give; 
Leave all you have, and are, behind ; 
Frankly the gift of God receive ; 
Pardon and peace in Jesus find. 

lol Tfie promised Comfort^}'. L. M. 

LORD, we believe to us and ours 
The apostolic promise given ; 
We wait the pentecostal powers, — 
The Holy Ghost sent down from heaven. 

2 Assembled here with one accord. 
Calmly we wait the promise<l grace, — 
The purchase of our dying Lord ; 
Come, Holy Ghost, and fill the place. 

3 If every one that asks may find, — ■ 
If still thou dost on sinners fall, — 
Come as a mighty rushing wind ; 
Great grace be now upon us all. 

4 Ah I leave us not to mourn below, 
Or long for thy return to pine ; 
Now, Lord, the Comforter bestow, 
And fix in us the Guest divine. 

1041 B'is way is in the sea. L. M. 

LORD of the wide, extensive main. 
Whose power the wind, the sea, controls. 
Whose hand doth earth and heaven sustain, 
Whose Spirit leads beheving souls : 

2 'Tis here thine unknown paths we trace. 
Which dark to human eyes appear ; 
While through the mighty waves we pass. 
Faith only sees that G-od is here, 

3 Throughout the deep thy footsteps shine, 
We own thy way is in the sea, 
O'erawed by majesty divine. 

And lost in thine immensity. 

4 Thy wisdom here we learn to' adore; 
Thine everlasting truth we prove ; 
Amazing heights of boundless power, 
Unfathomable depths of love.

444 Graven on the palms of His hands. L. M. 

JESUS, the Lamb of God, hath bled , 
He bore our sins upon the tree ; 
Beneath our curse he bow'd his head ; — 
'Tis finish'd! he hath died for me. 

2 See, where before the throne lie stands, 
And pours the all-prevailing prayer ; 
Points to his side, and lifts his hands, 
And shows that I am graven there. 

3 He ever lives for me to pray ; 

He prays that I with him may reign : 
Amen to what my Lord doth say ; 
Jesus, thou canst not pray in vain. 

oOl T7ie new covenant. L. M. 

OGOD, most merciful and true. 
Thy nature to my soul impart ; 
'Stabhsh with me the ccv'nant new, 
And stamp thine image on my heart. 

2 To real holiness restored, 

let me gain my Sa^-iour's mind ; 
And in the knowledge of my Lord, 
Fulness of life eternal find. 

3 Remember, Lord, my sins no more, 
That them I may no more forget ; 
But, sunk in guiltless shame, adore, 
With speecliless wonder, at thy feet. 

4 O'erwhelm'd with thy stupendous grace, 

1 shall not in thy presence move ; 
But breathe unutterable praise, 
And rapturous awe, and silent love. 

5 Then every murm'ring though t,and vain, 
Expires, in sweet confusion lost : 

1 cannot of my cross complain, — 
I cannot of my goodness boast. 

6 Pardon'd for all that I have done, 
My mouth as in the dust I hide ; 
And glory give to God alone, — 
My God in Jesus pacified.

MY soul, through my Redeemer's care, 
Saved fi:om the second death, I feel ; 
;Mine eyes fi-om tears of dark despair. 
My feet from falling into hell. 
2 Wherefore to him my feet shall run ; 
My eyes on his perfections gaze ; 
My soul shall live for God alone, 
And all within me shout his praise. 



krJU For mourners in Zion. L. M. 

OLET the pris'ners' mournful cries 
As incense in thy sight appear: 
'heir humble waitings pierce the skies, 
If haply they may feel thee near. 
2 The captive exiles make their moans, 
From sin impatient to be free : 
Call home, call home thy banish'd ones ; 
Lead captive their captivity. 



3 Show them the blood that bought their 
The anchor of their steadiast hope, [peace, 
And bid their guilty terrors cease, 

And bring the ransom'd pris'ners up, 

4 Out of the deep regard their cries ; 
The fallen raise, the mourners cheer : 
Sun of righteousness, arise, 

And scatter all their doubt and fear. 

5 Pity the day of feeble things ; 
gather every halting soul ; 

And drop salvation from thy wings, 
And make the contrite sinner whole. 

/. ». w The Minister' 8 prayer : Boldness in the 

000 Gospel. L. M, 

SHALL I, for fear of feeble man, 
The Spirit's course in me restrain ? 
Or, undismay'd in deed and word, 
Be a true witness of my Lord ? 

2 Awed by a mortal's frown, shall I 
Conceal the word of God Most High ? 
How then before thee shall I dare 

To stand, or how thine anger bear ? 

3 Shall I, to soothe the' unholy throng, 
Soften thy truth, or smooth my tongue, 
To gain earth's gilded toys, — or flee 
The cross endured, my Lord, by thee ? 

4 What then is he whose scorn I dread . 
Whose wrath or hate makes me afraid ? 
A man ! an heir of death ! a slave 

To sin ! a bubble on the wave ! 

5 Yea, let men rage ; since thou wilt spread 
Thy shadowing wings around my head : 
Since in all pain thy tender love 

Will still my sure refreshment prove. 

o4U Your life is hid with Christ in God. L. M. 

YE faithful souls, who Jesus know, 
If risen indeed with him ye are, 
Superior to the joys below. 
His resurrection's power declare. 

2 Your faith by holy tempers prove : 
By actions show your sins forgiven : 
And seek the glorious things above^ 
And follow Christ your head to heaven, 

3 There your exalted Saviour see, 
Seated at God's right hand again, 
In all his Father's majesty, 

In everlasting pomp to reign. 

4 To him continually aspire, 
Contending for your native place; 
And emulate the angel choir, 
And only live to love and praise. 

5 For who by Faith your Lord receive, 
Ye nothing seek or want beside ; 
Dead to the world and sin ye live ; 
Your creature-love is crucified. 

G Your real life, with Christ couceal'd, 
Deep in the Father's bosom lies ; 
And glorious as your Head reveal'd, 
Ye soon shall meet him in the skies.

And call them to their native land.

And grant them still thy love to share.

And will thy mercy ne'er return ? 

4 Thy quick'ning Spirit now impart, 
And wake to joy ea6h grateful heart ; 
While Israel's rescued tribes in thee 
Their bliss and full salvation see. 



A' 



oOu Ueavenly Hiss in prospect. L. M. 

RISE, my soul, on wings sublime, 
Above the vanities of time ; 
Let faith now pierce the veil, and see 
The glories of eternity. 

2 Born by a new, celestial birth, 
Why should I grovel here on earth ? 
Why grasp at vain and fleeting toys, 
So near to heaven's eternal joys. 

3 Shall aught beguile me on the road, — 
The narrow road that leads to God ? 
Or can I love this earth so well. 
As not to long with God to dwell ? 

4 To dwell with God, — to taste his love, 
Is the full heaven enjoy'd above : 
The glorious expectation now 
Is heavenly bliss begun below.

God, the nation's guardian. L. M. 

pREAT God! beneath whose piercing 
VT eye 

The earth's extended kingdoms lie ; 
Whose fav'ring smile upholds them all, 
Whose anger smites them, and they fall; — 

2 We bow before thy heavenly throne ; 
Thy power we see — thy greatness own ; 
Yet, cherish'd by thy milder voice, 

Our bosoms tremble and rejoice. 

3 Thy kindness to our fathers shown 
Their children's children long shall own ; 
To thee, with grateful hearts, shall raise 
The tribute of exulting praise. 

4 Led on by thine unerring aid, 
Secure the paths of life we tread ; 
And. freely as the vital air, 

Thy first and noblest bounties share. 

5 Grpat God. our guardian, guide, and 
still thy shelt'ring arm extend ; [friend ! 
Preser\'ed by thee for ages past, 

For ages let thy kingdom last 



UU i Evening : Trusting in God. L. M. 

p LORY to thee, my God, this night, 
vT For all the blessings of the light : 
Keep me, keep me. King of kings, 
Beneath the shadow of thy wings. 

2 Forgive me, Lord, for thy dear Son, 
The ill which I this day have donp ; 
That with the world, myself, and tliee, 
I, ere I sleep, at peace may be. 

3 Teach me to live, that I may drea 1 
The grave as little as my bed ; 
Teach me to die, that so I may 

Rise glorious at the judgment-day. 

4 let my soul on thee repose. 

And may sweet sleep mine eyelids close ; 
Sleep, which shall me more vig'rous make. 
To serve my God, when I awake. 

5 Lord, let my soul forever share 
The bliss of thy paternal care : 

'Tis heaven on earth, 'tis heaven above. 
To see thy face, and sing thy love. 

07 

A i Solemn reverence. L. Jr. 

ETERNAL Power, whose high abode 
Becomes the grandeur of a God : 
Infinite lengths beyond the bounds 
Where stars revolve their httle rounds : 

2 Thee while the first archangel sings, 
He hides his face behind his wings : 
And ranks of shining thrones around 
Fall worshipping, and spread the ground. 

3 Lord, what shall earth and ashes do ? 
We would adore our Maker too ; 
From sin and dust to thee we cry, 
The Great, the Holy, and the High. 

4 Earth, from afar, hath heard thy fame, 
And worms have learn' d to lisp thy name ; 
Bnt ! the glories of thy mind 

Leave all our soaring thoughts behind. 

5 God is in heaven, and men below : 
Be short our tunes ; our words be few : 
A solemn reverence checks our song^, 
And praise sits silent on our tongues. 

OO True worship everywhere accepted L M. 

THOU, to whom, in ancient time. 
The psalmist's sacred harp was strung, 
Whom kings adored in song sublime, 
Audprophetspraisedwithglowingtongue. 

2 Not now on Zion's height alone 
The favour'd worshipper may dwell. 
Nor where, at sultry noon, thy Son 
Sat weary by the patriarch's well. 

3 From every place below the skies, 
The grateful song, the fervent p'ayer. 
The incense of the heart, may rise 
To heaven, and find acceptance theie. 

4 thou, to whom, in ancinnt time, 
The holy prophet's harp was strung ; 
To thee, at last, in every clime. 
Shall temples rise, and praise be sung.

503 Christ all in all. L. M. 

HOLY, ami true, and righteous Lord, 
I wait to prove thy pt-rfect will : 
Be mindful of thy gracious word, 
And stamp me with thy Spirit's seal. 

2 Open my faith's interior eye : 
Display thy glory from above ; 
And all I am shall sink and die, 
Lost in astonishment and love. 

3 Confound, o'erpower me by thy grace ; 

1 would be by myself abhorr'd ; 
All might, all majesty, all praise, 
All glory, be to Christ my Lord. 

4 Now let me gain perfection's height ; 
Now let me into nothing fall. 

As less than nothing in thy sight, 
And feel that Christ is all in all. 

10G5 77ie inevitable doom. L. M. 

TREMENDOUS God, with humble fear, 
Prostrate before thy awful throne. 
The word unchangeable we hear — 
■Thy sov'reign righteousness we own. 

2 'Tis fit we should to dust return, 
Since such the will of God Most High ; 
In sin conceived, to trouble born. 
Born to lament, and toil, and die. 

3 Submissive to thy just decree. 

We all shall soon from earth remove ; 
But when thou sendest. Lord, for me, 
let the messenger be love. 

4 Whisper thy love into my heart ; 
Warn me of my approaching end ; 
And then I joyfully depart, 

And then I to thy arms ascend. 



i:;g 



Peace, love, 2'>urity. L. M. 

¥[IEN first the Spirit left the throne, 
He took the semblance of a dove ; 
A symbol chosen to make known 
His peace, and purity, and love. 

2 When next, at Pentecost, he came, 
He stood confess'd to mortal sight 
Withm the cloven tongue of flame, — 
The type of freedom, guidance, light. 

3 Vouchsafe, celestial Dove, thy peace, 
That we at perfect peace may be ; 
Witliin our hearts thy love increase, — 
AVithin our thoughts, thy purity. 

4 Light divine ! direct our feet, 
Wliich long in error's paths have trod ; 
Our prison'd souls with freedom greet 
Convince of sin, and lead to God. 



1 u.M Sown in iceaknesH, raised in glory. L. M. 

THE morning flowers display their 
sweets, 
An;l gay their silken leaves unfold, 
As careless of the noontide heats. 
As fearless of the evenincr cold. 



2 Nipp'd by the wind's untimely blas,^, 
Parch'd by the sun's directer ray, 

The momentary glories waste, 
The short-lived beauties die away. 

3 So blooms the human face divine, 
When youth its pride of beauty shows ; 
Fairer than spring the colours shine, 
And sweeter than the virgin rose. 

4 Or worn by slowly-rolling years, 
Or broke by sickness in a day, 
The fading glory disapjiears. 

The short-lived beauties die away. 

5 Yet these, new rising from the tomb, 
With lustre brighter far shall shine, 
Revive, with ever-during bloom, 

Safe from diseases and decline. 

6 Let sickness blast, let death devour, 
If heaven must recompense our pains ; 
Perish the grass, and fade the flower, 
If firm the word of God remains. 

Z\o For the success of ministers. L. M. 

FATHER of mercies, bow thine ear. 
Attentive to our earnest prayer : 
We plead for those who plead for thee : 
Successful pleaders may they be. 

2 0, clothe their words with power divine, 
And let those words be ever thine ; 

To them thy sacred tiuth reveal ; 
Suppress their fear, inflame their zeal, 

3 Teach them to sow the precious seed ; 
Teach them thy chosen flock to feed ; 
Teach them immortal souls to gain, — 
And thus reward their toil and pain. 

4 Let thronging multitudes around 
Hear from their lips the joyful sound ; 
In humble strains thy grace implore, 
And feel thy Spirit's living power. 

nwQ Tlie Minister s prayer : Chrisfs 

OOO constraining lone. L. M- 

SAVIOUR of men, thy searching eye 
Doth all mine inmost thoughts descry : 
Doth aught on earth my wishes raise, 
Or the world's pleasures, or its praise ? 

2 The love of Christ doth me constrain 
To seek the wand'ring souls of men ; 
With cries, entreaties, tears, to save, — 
To snatch them from the gaping grave. 

3 For this let men revile my name; 
No cross I shun, I fear no shame : 

All hail, reproach ; and welcome, pain ; 
Only thy terrors. Lord, restrain, 

4 My life, my blood, I here present. 
If for thy truth they may be spent ; 
Fulfil thy sov'reign counsel. Lord ; 
Thy will be done, thy Name adored. 

5 Give me thy strength, God of power; 
Then let winds blow, or thunders roar, 
Thy faithful witness will I be : 

'Tis fix'd ; I can do all through thee.

ABRAHAM, when severely tried, 
His faith by his obedience show'd ; 
He with the harsh command compUed, 
And gave his Isaac back to God. 

2 His son the father offer'd up, — j 
Son of his age, his only son ; 
Object of all his joy and hope, 
And less beloved than God alone.

The bright example may pursue ; 
May gladly give up all to thee, 
To whom our more than all is due.

A thing from which we cannot part ? 
We can ; we now rejoice to tear 
The idol from our bleeding heart. 

5 Jesus, accept our sacrifice ; 
All things for thee we count but loss ; 
Lo ! at thy word our idol dies, — 
Dies on the altar of thy cross.

And soon with thee shall all receive 
And loss shall be eternal g-ain.

3 Be all my added life employ'd 
Thine image in my soul to see : 
Fill with thyself the mighty void ; 
Enlarge my heart to compass thee.

For this my cries shall never fail ;

5 Come, then, my Hope, my Life, my Lord, 
And fix in me thy lasting home ; 

Be mindful of thy gracious word —

OGOD, thou art my God alone ; 
Early to thee my soul shall cry ; 
A pilgrim in a land unknown, — 
A thirsty land, whose springs are dry. 

2 Thee, in the watches of the night, 
When I remember on my bed, 

Thy presence makes the darkness light ; 
Thy guardian wings are round my head. 

3 Better than life itself, thy love : 
Dearer tliaii all beside to me ; 

For whom have I in heaven above. 

Or what on earth, compared with thee ? 

4 Praise with my heart,my mmd,my voice, 
For all thy mercy I will give ; 

My soul shall still m God rejoice, — 
My tongue shall bless thee while I Uve. 

1(J') Incmnprehensibly glorious. L. M. 

OD i?5 a Name my soul adores, — 
The' almighty Three, the' eternal One : 
Nature and grace, with all their powers, 
Confess the Infinite Unknown. 

2 Thy voice produced the sea and spheres ; 
Bade the waves roar, the planets shine : 
But nothing like thyself appears 
Through all these spacious works of thine. 

3 Still restless nature dies and grows ; 
From change to change the creatures run : 
Thy being no succession knows. 

And all thy vast designs are ona. 

4 A glance of thine runs through the globe, 
Eules the bright worlds, and moves their 

frame ; 
Of light thou form'st thy dazzling robe ; 
Thy ministers are living flame. 

5 How shall polluted mortals dare 
To sing thy glory or thy grace ? 
Beneath thy feet we lie afar, 
And see but shadows of thy face. 

G Who can behold the blazing light? 
Who can approach consuming flame? 
None but thy wisdom knows thy might ; 
None but thy word can speak thy name. 

J<J Tlie severed olive-branch. L. M. 

LORD, visit thy forsaken race : 
Back to thy fold the wand'rers bring ; 
Teach them to seek thy slighted grace, 
And hail in Christ their promised King. 

2 That veil of darkness ren;l in twain, 
Which hides their Shiloh's glorious light; 
That sever'd olive-branch again 

Firm to its parent-stock unite. 

3 Hail, glorious day — expected long ! 
When Jew and Greek one prayer shall 

pour; 
With eager feet one temple throng, — 
With grateful praise one God adore. 



AW Labourers together with God. L. M. 

THUS saith the Lord— 'tis God com- 
mands ; 
Workers with God, the charge obey ; 
Remove whate'er his work withstands, — 
Prepare, prepare his people's way. 

2 Lift up, for all mankind to see, 
The standard of their Saviour God, 
And point them to the shameful tree, — 
The cross, all stain'd with hallow'd blood. 

3 Himself prepares his people's hearts, — 
Breaks and binds up, and wounds and heals; 
A mystic death and life imparts; 
Empties the full, the emptied fills : 

4 He fills whom first he hath prepared ; 
With him the perfect grace is given : 
Himself is here our great reward, — 
Our future and our present heaven. 

OU Infinite in xcisdom. L. M. 

PRAISE ye the Lord! 'tis good to raise 
Your hearts and voices in his praise : 
His nature and his works invite 
To make this duty our delight. 

2 He form'd the stars, those heavenly 

flames ; 
He counts their numbers, calls their names; 
His wisdom's vast,and knows no bound. — 
A deep where all our thoughts are drown'd. 

3 Sing to the Lord ! exalt him high. 
Who spreads the clouds along the sky ; 
There he prepares the fruitful rain. 
Nor lets the drops descend in vain. 

4 He makes the grass the hills adorn ; 
He clothes the smiling fields with corn ; 
The beasts with food his hands supply. 
And the young ravens when they cry. 

5 What is tlie creature's skill or force ? 
The sprightly man, or warlike horse ? 
The piercing wit, the active limb ? 
All are too mean delights for him. 

But «5aints are lovely in his sight ; 
He views his children with delight : 
He sees their hope, he knows their fear, 
He looks, and loves his image there.

And ye shall prove my Gospel true,

FROM Calvary a cry was heard, — 
A bitter and heart-rending cry, 
My Saviour ! every mournful word 
Bespeaks thy soul's deep agony. 

2 A horror of great darkness fell 
On thee, thou spotless, holy One! 
And all the swarming hosts of hell 
Conspired to tempt God's only Son. 

3 The scourge, the thorns, the deep dis- 

grace, — 
These thou couldst bear, nor once repine; 
But when Jehovah veil'd his face. 
Unutterable pangs were thine. 

4 Let the dumb world its silence break ; 
Let pealing anthems rend the sky; 
Awake, my sluggish soul, awake! 

He died, that we might never die. 

5 Lord ! on thy cross I fix mine eye : 
If e'er I lose its strong control, 

let that dying, piercing cry. 

Melt and reclaim my wand'ring soul.

THOU,whom once they flock'd to hear, 
Thy words to hear, thy power to feel, — 
Suffer a sinner to draw near, 
And graciously receive me still. 

2 They that be whole, thyself hast said. 
No need of a physician have ; 

But I am sick, and want thine aid. 
And wait thine utmost power to save. 

3 Thy power, and truth, and love divme. 
The same from age to ag3 endure : 

A word, a gracious word of thine. 
The most invet'rate plague can cure. 

4 Helpless howe'er my spirit lies. 
And long liath languish'd at the pool : 
A word of thine shall make it rise. 
And speak me in a moment whole.

Glorying only in Vie cross. 

¥nEX I survey the wondrous cross 
On Avhich the Prince of glory died, 
My richest gain I count but loss, 
And pour contempt on all my pride, 

2 Forbid it, Lord, that I should boast. 
Save in the death of Christ, my Grod ; 
All the vain things that charm me most, 
I sacrifice them to his blood. 

3 See, from his head, his hands, his feet, 
Sorrow and love flow mingled down : 
Did e'or such love and sorrow meet, 

Or thorns compose so rich a crown ? 

4 Were the whole realm of nature mine 
That were a present far too small ; 
Love so amazing, so divine. 
Demands my suul, my life, my all. 



4<t) TJcehlins of assurance. L. .M. 

LORD, how secure and blest are they 
Who feel the joys of pardou'd sin ; 
Should storms of wrath shake eartli and st' i, 
Their minds have heaven and peace within, 

2 The day glides sweetly o'er their head-, 
Made up of innocence and love ; 

And soft, and silent as the shades, 
Their nightly minutes gently move, 

3 Quick as their thoughts, their joys coni(3 
But fly not half so swift away ; [on, 
Their souls are ever bright as uoon, 
And calm as summer evenings be, 

4 How oft they look to tiie' heavenly hills, 
Where groves of living pleasure grow ; 
And longing hopes, and cheerful smiles, 
Sit undisturb'd upon their brow. 

5 They scorn to seek earth's golden toys, 
But spend the day, and share the night, 
In numb'ring o'er the I'lchei- joys 

That Heaven prepares for their delight. 

t)io For the SpiriVfi guid<tnce. L. M. 

JESUS, my Saviour, Brother, Friend, 
On whom I cast my every care. 
On whom for all things I depend, — 
Inspire, and then accept, my prayer. 

2 If I have tasted of thy grace, — 
The grace that sure salvation brings ; 
If with me now thy Spirit stays. 
And, hov'ring, hides me in his wings. 

3 Still let him with my weakness stay. 
Nor for a moment's space depart; 
Evil and danger turn away. 

And keep, till he renews, my heart. 

4 If to the right or left I stray, 
His voice behind me may I hear, — 
Return, and walk in Christ, thy wny ; 
Fly back to Christ, for sin is near 1 

804 The TOXD sealed at the cross. L, M. 

LORD, I am thine, entirely thine. 
Purchased and saved by blood divine ; 
With full consent thine I would be, 
And own thy sov'reign right in me. 

2 Grant one poor sinner moie a place 
Among the children of thy grace ; 

A wretched sinner, lost to God, 
But ransom'd by Immanuel's blood. 

3 Thine would I live — thine would I die; 
Be thine through all eternity ; 

The vow is past beyond repeal. 
And now I set the solemn seal. 

4 Here, at that cross where flows the blood 
That bought my guilty soul for God, — 
Thee, my new Master, now I call. 

And consecrate to thee my all. 

5 Do thou assist a feeble worm 
The great engagement to perform ; 
Thy grace can full assistance lend, 
And on tliat grace I dare de{)end.

9 i 2 Souh perishing /or lack ojknoicle<lge. L. M. 

SHEPHERD of souls, with pitying eye 
The thousands of our Israel see ; 
To thee in their behalf we cry, — 
Ourselves but newly found iu thee; 

2 See where o'er desert wastes they err, 
And neither food nor feeder have, 
Nor fold, nor place of refuge near, 
For no man cares their souls to save. 

, ;> Thy people, Lord, are sold for naught, 
Nor know they their Redeemer nigh ; 
'JMiey perish, whom thyself hast bought; 
Their souls for lack of knowledge die. 

4 The pit its mouth hath open'd wide, 
To swallow up its careless prey : 

Why should they die, when thou hast 

died — 
Hast died to "bear iheir sins away ? 

5 Why should the foe thy purchase seize ? 
Remember, Lord, thydying groans: 
The meed of all thy suffei-ings these ; 

claim them for th.y ransom'd ones ! 

i) Jef<n.<i reigns. L. M. 

COME, let us tune our loftiest song. 
And raise to Christ our joyful strain ; 
Worship and thanks to Him belong, 
Who reigns, and shall forever reign. 

2 His sov'reign power our bodies made ; 
Our souls are his immortal breath ; 
And when his creatures sinn'd, he bled, 
To save us nom eternal death. 

3 Burn every breast with Jesus' love ; 
Bound every heart with rapt'rous joy ; 
And saints on earth, with saints above 
Your voices in his praise employ. 

4 Extol the Lamb with loftiest song, 
Ascend for him our cheerful strain ; 
Worship and thanks to Ilim belong, 
Who reigns, and shall forever reign. 

lUnJ ChrisVi preserve makes death eauy. L. M. 

TXTHY should we start, and fear to die? 
' ' What tim'rous worms we mortals are ! 
Death is the gate to endless joy, 
And yet we dread to enter there. 

2 The pains, tlie groans, the dying strife. 
Fright our approaching souls away ; 
And we shrink back again to life. 

Fond of our prison and our clay. 

3 would my Lord his servant meet, 
My soul would stretch her wings in haste, 
Fly fearless through death's iron gate, 
Nor feel the terrors as she pass'd. 

4 Jesus can make a dying bed 
Feel soft as downy pillows are. 
While on his breast I lean my head, 
And breathe my life out sweetly there.

wf\m. Morning : Sacrifice of praise and 

\ irJ i prayer. L. M. 

AWAKE, my soul, and wiih the suii 
, Thy daily stage of duty run ; 

I Siiuke off dull sloth, and joyful rise 

To pay thy morning sacrifice. 

2 Wake, and lift up thyself, my heart, 
And with the angels bear thy part, 
Who all night long unwearied sing 
nigh praises to the' eternal King. 

3 All praise to Thee, who safe hast kept, 
And ha-<t refresli'd me while I slept: 
Gr.mt, Lord, when I fi-om death shall wake, 
I may of endless life partake. 

4 Lord, I my vows to thee renew ; 
Scatter my sins as morning dew ; 
Guard my first springs of thought and will, 
And with thyself my spirit fill. 

5 Direct, control, suggest, this day, 
All I design, or do, or say ; 

Tliat all my powers, with all their might, 
In thy sole glory may unite.

«J A mortal man ashamed of thee ! 
i\shamed of thee, whom angels praise, — 
^Vhose glories shine through- endless dfiys. 

2 Ashamed of Jesus! — that dear Friend 
On whom my hopes of heaven depend ; 
No I — when I blush, be this my shame, — 
That I no more revere his Name. 

3 Ashamed of Jesus, — yes, I may, 
vv'hen I've no guilt to wash away ; 
No tear to wipe, no good to crave, 
No fears to quell, no soul to save. 

4 Till then — nor is my boasting vain — 
Till then, I boast a Saviour slain; 
And 0, may this my glory be, — 
That Christ is not ashamed of me. 

For the peace of Jeruftalem. L. M. 

OTHOU, our Saviour, Brother, Friend, 
Behold a cloud of incense rise; 
The prayers of saints to lieaven ascend, 
Grateful, accepted sacrifice. 

2 Regard our prayers for Zion's peace ; 
Shed in our hearts thy love abroad ; 
Thy gifts abundantly increase ; 
Enlarge, and fill us all with God. 

3 Before thy sheep, great Shepherd, go, 
And guide into thy perfect will : 
Cause us thy hallow'd name to know ; 
The work of faith in us fulfill. 

4 Help us to make our calling sure ; 
let us all be saints indeed. 

And pure, as thou thyself art pure, — 
C(jnform'd in all things to our Head. 

5 Take the dear purchase of thy blood ; — 
Thy blood shall wash us white .'i<? snow, 
Present us sanctified to God. 

And perfected in lov.- below.

2i)l Anticipating the heavenly Sabbath. L. M. 

LORD of the Sabbath, hear us pray, 
In this tliy house, on this thy day ; 
And own, as grateful sacrifice, 
The songs which from thy servants rise. 

2 Thine earthly Sabbaths, Lord, we love, 
But there's a nobler rest above; 

To that our lab'ring souls aspire, 
With ardent hope, and strong desire. 

3 No more fatigue, no more distress. 
Nor sin nor hell shall reach the place ; 
No sighs shall mingle with the songs. 
Which warble from immortal tongues. 

4 No rude alarms of raging foes ; 
No cares to break the long repose ; 
No midnight shade, no clouded sun; 
But sacred, high, eternal noon. 

5 long-expected day, begin , 
Dawn on these realms of woe and sin : 
Fain would we leave this weary road, 
And sleep in death, to rest with Grod.

The dreadful day. 



I.. M. 



THE day of wrath, that dreadful day, 
When heaven and earth shall pass away ! 
What power shall be the sinner's stay ? 
How shall he meet that dreadful day — 

2 When, shriv'Ung like a parched scroll, 
The flaming heavens together roll ; 
And, louder yet, and yet more dread, 
Swells the high trump that wakes the dead ? 

3 0, on that day, that wrathful day, 
When man to judgment wakes from cla}', 
Be thou, Christ, the sinner's stay. 
Though heaven and earth shall pass away.

The riches of Ris grace. 



L. M. 



ETERNAL depth of love divine, 
In Jesus, Grod with us, display'd ; 
How bright thy beaming glories shine ! 
How wide thy healing streams are spread! 

2 With whom dost thou delight to dwell ? 
Sinners, a vile and thankless race ! 

God, what tongue aright can tell 
How vast thy love, how great thy grace I 

3 The dictates of thy sov'reign will 
With joy our grateful hearts receive ; 
All thy delight in us fulfil ; 

Lo, all we are to thee we give. 

4 To thy sure love, thy tender care, 
Our flesh, soul, spirit, we resign ; 

fix thy sacred presence there. 
And seal the' abode forever thine. 

g^^ o Mij heart is fixed ; O God, my heart ia . 

918 fixed. L.M. 

MY heart is fix' d on thee, my Q-od ; 
I rest my hope on thee alone ; 
I'll spread thy sacred truths abroad, — 
To all mankind thy love make known. 

2 Awake, my tongue; awake, my lyre; 
With morning's earliest dawn arise ; 

To songs of joy my soul inspire. 
And swell your music to the skies. 

3 With those who in thy grace abound, 
To thee I'll raise my thankful voice ; 
Till every land, the earth around. 
Shall hear, and in thy Name rejoice. 

4 Eternal God, celestial King, 
Exalted be thy glorious Name ; 

Let hosts in heaven thy praises sing. 
And saints on earth thy love proclaim. 



WHAT am I, thou glorious God ! 
And what my father's house to thee, 
That thou such mercy hast bestow'd 
On me, the vilest reptile, me ? 

2 Me, in my blood, thy love pass'd by. 
And stopp'd my ruin to retrieve ; 
Wept o'er ray soul thy pitying eye ; 
Thy bowels yearn'd, and sounded, — Live ! 

3 Dying, I heard the welcome sound, 
Received the blessing from above. 
And pardon in thy mercy found, 
Astonish'd at thy boundless love. 

4 Honour, and might, and thanks, and 

1 render to my pard'ning God ; [praise, 
Extol the riches of thy grace. 

And spread thy saving name abroad. 

5 I magnify thy gracious power, 
And all within me shouts thy Name : 
Thy Name let every soul adore ; 
Thy power let every tongue proclaim. 

boo The Saviour seen in the Scriptures. L. M. 

"VrOW let my soul, eternal King, 
1^ To thee its grateful tribute bring ; 
My knee, with humble homage, bow ; 
My tongue perform its solemn vow. 

2 All nature sings thy boundless love, 
In worlds below, and worlds above ; 
But in thy blessed word I trace 
Diviner wonders of thy grace. 

3 There, what delightful truths I read ! 
There, I behold the Saviour bleed : 
His name salutes my list'ning ear, 
Revives my heart, and checks my fear. 

4 There Jesus bids my sorrows cease, 
And gives my lab'ring conscience peace ; 
Raises my grateful thoughts on high, 
And points to mansions in the sky. 

5 For love like this, let my song, 
Through endless years, thy praise prolong ; 
Let distant climes thy Name adore, 

T !l time and nature are no more.

ulw Evening : Memorials of His grace. L. M. 

THUS far the Lord hath led me on,— 
Thus far his power prolongs my days; 
And every evening shall make known 
Some fresh memorial of his grace. 

2 Much of my time has run to waste, 
And I, perhaps, am near my home : 
But he forgives my follies past, 

And gives me strength for days to come. 

3 I lay my body down to sleep ; 
Peace is the pillow for my head ; 
While well-appointed angels keep 
Their watchful stations round my bed. 

4 Thus, when the night of death shall come. 
My flesh shall rest beneath the ground, 
And wait thy voice to rouse my tomb, 
With sweet salvation in the sound.

One fold and one Shepherd. 



L. M. 



ri IVER of peace and unity, 

VT Send down thy mild, pacific Dove ; 

We all shall then in one agree. 

And breathe the spirit of thy love. 

2 We all shall think and speak the same 
Delightful lesson of thy grace : 

One undivided Christ proclaim, 
And jointly glory in thy praise. 

3 let us take a softer mould. 
Blended and gather'd into thee ; 
Under one Shepherd make one fold, 
Where all is love and harmony. 

4 Regard thine own eternal prayer, 
And send a peaceful answer down : 
To us thy Father s Name declare ; 
Unite and perfect us in one. 

5 So shall the world believe and know 
That God hath sent thee from above, 
When thou art seen in us below. 

And every soul displays thy love. 

54 J Design of prayer. L. M. 

PRAYER is appointed to convey 
The blessings God designs to give : 
Long as they live should Christians pray ; 
They learn to pray when first they live. 

2 If pain afflict, or wrongs oppress ; 
If cares distract, or fears dismay ; 
If guilt deject ; if sin distress ; 

In every case, still watch and pray. 

3 'Tis prayer supports the soul that's weak : 
Though thought be broken, language lame. 
Pray, if thou canst or canst not speak ; 
But pray with faith in Jesus' name. 

4 Depend on him ; thou canst not fail ; 
Make all thy wantii and wishes known ; 
Fear not ; his merits must prevail : 
Ask but in faith, it shall be done. 



348 The gospel feast. l. U 

COME, sinners, to the gospel feast ; 
Let every soul be Jesus' guest ; 
Ye need not one be left behind. 
For God hath bidden all mankmd. 

2 Sent by my Lord, on you I call ; 
The invitation is to all : — 

Come all the world I come, sinner, thou ! 
All things in Christ are ready now. 

3 Come, all ye souls by sin oppress'd, 
Ye restles? wand'rers after rest ; 

Ye poor, and maim'd, and halt, and blind, 
In Christ a hearty welcome find. 

4 My message as from God receive ; 
Ye all may come to Christ and live : 
O let his love your hearts constrain, 
Nor suffer him to die in vain. 

5 See him set forth before your eyes, 
That precious, bleeding sacrifice : 
His offer' d benefits embrace, 

And freely now be saved by grace. 



475 



Filial confidence and joy. 



L. M. 

p REAT God, indulge my humble claim ; 
vT Be thou my hope, my joy, my rest ; 
The glories that compose thy name 
Stand all engaged to make me blest. 

2 Thou great and good, thou just and wise, 
Thou art my Father and my God ; 

And I am thine by sacred ties, — 

Thy son, thy servant bought with blood. 

3 With heart and eyes, and lifted hands, 
For thee I long, to thee I look ; 

As travellers in thirsty lands 
Pant for the cooling water-brook. 

4 I'll lift my hands, I'll raise my voice. 
While I have breath to pray or praise : 
This work shall make ray heart rejoice, 
And fill the remnant of my days. 

247 Fledge of endless rest. L. M. 

EETURN, my soul, enjoy thy rest ; 
Improve the day thy God hath blest : 
Another six days' work is done ; 
Another Sabbath is begun. 

2 that our thoughts and thanks may rise, 
As grateful incense to the skies ; 

And draw from Christ that sweet repose 
Which none but he that feels it knows. 

3 This heavenly calm within the breast. 
Is the dear pledge of glorious rest. 
Which for the Church of God remains, 
The end of cares, the end of pains. 

4 In holy duties, let the day, 
In lioly comforts, pass away ; 

How sweet, a Sabbath thus to spend^ 
In hope of one that ne'er shall end.

Perpetual blessings from thy hand 
Demand perpetual songs of praise.

LORD, we are vile, conceived in sin, 
And born unholy and unclean ; 
Sprung from the man whose guilty fall 
Corrupts his race, and taints us all. 

2 Soon as we draw our infant breath 
The seeds of sin grow up for death ; 
Thy law demands a perfect heart. 
But we're defiled in every part. 

3 Behold, we fall before thy face ; 
Our only refuge is thy grace : 

No outward forms can make us clean ; 
The leprosy lies deep within. 

4 Nor bleeding bird, nor bleeding beast, 
Nor hyssop branch, nor sprinkUng priesi, 
Nor running brook, nor flood, nor sea, 
Can wash the dismal stain away. 

5 Jesus, thy blood, thy blood alone, 
Hath power sufficient to atone; 

Thy blood can make us white as ptiow 
No Jewish types could cleanse us so. 

6 While guilt disturbs and breaks our jieace, 
Nor flesh nor soul hath rest or ease ;

751 God's presence tcith his people. L. M. 

¥HEX Israel, of the Lord beloved, 
Out from the land of bondage came, 
Her father's God before her moved. 
An awful guide, in smoke and flame. 

2 By day, along the astonish'd lands 
The cloudy pillar glided slow ; 

By night, Arabia's crimson's sands 
Return'd the fiery column's glow. 

3 Thus present still, though now unseen, 
When brightly shines the prosp'rous day, 
Be thoughts of thee a cloudy screen, 

To temper tlie deceitful ray. 

4 And 0, when gathers on our path, 
In slmde and storm, the frequent night, 
Be thou, long-sufif'ring, slow to wrath, 
A burning and a shining light. 

00 Wisdom, justice, truth. L. M. 

THINE, Lord, is wisdom, thine alone ! 
Justice and truth before thee stand : 
Yet, nearer to thy sacred throne, 
Mercy withholds thy lilted hand. 

2 Each evening shows thy tender love ; 
Each rising morn thy plenteous grace : 
Thy waken'd wrath doth slowly move ; 
Thy willing mercy flies apace. 

3 To thy benign, indulgent care. 
Father, this light, this breath we ow^e ; 
And all we have, and all we are, 
From thee, great Source of being, flow. 

4 Thrice Holy I thine the kingdom is, 
Tlie power omnipotent is thine ; 

And when created nature dies, 
Thy never-ceasing glories shine. 

oOo Rejoicing in the glory of Jlis grace. L. M. 

p LORY to God, w'hose sov'reign grace 
vT Hath animated senseless stones, — 
Call'd us to stand before his face. 
And raised us into Abrah'm's sons. 

2 The people that in darkness lay, 
In sin and error's deadly shade, 
Have seen a glorious gospel-day 
In Jesus' lovely face display'd. 

3 Thou only. Lord, the work hast done, 
An<l bared thine arm in all our sight; 
Hast made the reprobates thine own. 
And claim'd the outcasts as thy right. 

4 Thy single arm, almighty Lord, 
To us the great salvation brought ; 
Thy Word, thy all-creating Word, 
That spake at first the world from naught, 

5 For this the saints lift up their voice. 
And ceaseless praise to thee is given ; 
For this the hosts above rejoice, 

And praise thee in the highest heaven. 



«jZ I Clirist, the good Physician. L. M. 

JESUS, thy far-extended fame 
My drooping soul exults to hear ; 
Thy Name, thy all-restoring Name, 
Is music in a sinner's ear. 

2 Sinners of old thou didst receive 
With comfortable words, and kind ; 
Their sorrows cheer, their wants relieve, 
Heal the diseased, and cure the Wind. 

3 And art thou not the Saviour still, 
In every place and age the same ? 
Hast thou forgot thy gracious skill, 
Or lost the virtue of thy name ? 

4 Faith in thy changeless name I have : 
The good, the kind Physician, thou 
Art able now our souls to save, 

Art wilHng to restore them now. 

OU How dreadful is tliis place ! L. M, 

THOU, whom all thy saints adore, 







We now with all thy saints agree, 
And bow our inmost souls before 
Thy glorious, awful Majesty. 

2 We come, great God, to seek thy f;ice, 
And for thy loving kindness wait; 

And 0, how^ dreadful is this place ! 
'lis God's own house, 'tis heaven s gate. 

3 Tremble our hearts to find thee nigh ; 
To thee our trembling hearts appire : 
And lo ! w^e see descend from high 
The pillar and the flame of fire. 

4 Still let it on the' assembly stay, 
And all the house with glory fill ; 

To Canaan's bounds point out the way, 
And lead us to thy holy hill. 

5 There let us all with Jesus stand. 
And join the general Church above. 
And take our seats at thy right hand, 
And sing thine everlasting love. 

59 The bond of love. L. M. 

PRAISE waits in Zion, Lord, for thee ; 
Thy saints adore thy holy Name , 
Thy creatures bend the' obedient knee, 
And, humbly, now thy presence claim. 

2 Eternal Source of truth and light. 
To thee we look, on thee we call ; 
Lord, we are nothing in thy sight, 
But thou to us art all in all. 

3 Still may thy children in thy word 
Their common trust and refuge see ; 
0, bind us to each other. Lord, 

By one great bond, — the love of thee. 

4 So shall our sun of hope arise, 
With brighter still and brighter ray, 
Till thou shalt bless our longing eyes 
With beams of everlasting day.

The Hver of life. 



L. M. 



p REAT Source of being and of love ! 
vJ Thou wat'rest all the worlds above ; 
Aud all the joys which mortals know, 
From thine exhaustless fountain flow. 

2 A sacred spring, at thy command, 
From Zion's mount, in Canaan's laud, 
Beside thy temple cleaves the ground, 
And pours its hmpid stream around. 

3 Close by its banks, in order fair, 
The blooming trees of life appear; 
Their blossoms fragrant odours give, 
And on their fruit the nations hve. 

4 Flow, wondrous stream I with glory 

crown'd. 
Flow on to earth's remotest bound ; 
And bear us, on thy gentle wave, 
To Him who all thy virtues gave. 

i O Omnipotence and wisdom. L. M. 

COME, my soul, in sacred lays. 
Attempt thy great Creator's praise : 
But 0, what tongue can speak his fame ? 
What mortal verse can reach the theme ? 

2 Enthroned amid the radiant spheres, 
He glory like a garment wears ; 

To form a robe of light divine, 

Ten thousand suns around him shine. 

3 In all our Maker's grand designs. 
Omnipotence, with wisdom, shines ; 

His works, thro' all this wondrous frame, 
Declare the glory of his Name. 

4 Raised on devotion's lofty wing, 
Do thou, my soul, his glories sing ; 
And let his praise employ thy tongue, 
Till list'ning worlds shall join the song. 

(02 Striving together for the faith of the Gosjyel. L.M. 

UNCHANGEABLE, almighty Lord, 
Our souls upon thy truth we stay ; 
Accomplish now thy faithful word, 
And give, give us all one way. 

2 let us all join hand in hand. 
Who seek redemption in thy blood ; 
Fast in one mind and spirit stand, 
And build the temple of our God. 

3 Thou only canst our wills control,— 
Our wild, unruly passions bind ; 
Tame the old Adam in our soul, 
And make us of one heart and mind. 

4 Speak but the reconciling word. 

The winds shall cease, the waves subside; 
We all shall praise our common Lord, — 



2 Uphold me, Saviour, or I fall ; 

reach me out thy gracioi s hand : 
Only on thee for help I call, — 
Only by faith in thee I stand. 

OOl Smarting under the rod. L. M 

CHASTISED by an indulgent God, 
I would the kind chastisement feel ; 
But never faint beneath the rod. 
Nor desp'rate, nor insensible : — 

2 From each extreme divinely kept, 
The trouble coming from above 

1 would with thankful awe accept. 
And bless with tears my Father's love.

lUt/O D'ly dawns on the night of the grave. L. M. 

HALL man, God of light and life, 
Forever moulder in the grave ? 
Canst thou forget thy glorious work. 
Thy promise, and thy power, to save ? 

2 In those dark, silent realms of night 
Shall peace and hope no more arise ? 
No future morning light the tomb, 
Nor day-star gild the darksome skies? 

3 Cease — cease, ye vain, desponding fears: 
Vv'hen Christ, our Lord, from darkness 

sprang. 
Death, the last foe, was captive led, 
And heaven with praise and wonder rang. 

4 Faith sees the bright, eternal doors 
Unfold, to make his children way ; 
They shall be clothed with endless life, 
And shine in everlasting day. 

5 The trump shall sound — the dead shall 
wake; 

From the cold tomb the slumb'rers spring; 
Thro' heaven, with joy their myriads rise, 
And hail their Saviour and their Kinn^.

The ministry instituted. 



L.M. 

THE Saviour, when to heaven he rose, 
In splendid triumph o'er his foes, 
Scatter'd his gifts on men below. 
And still his royal bounties flow. 

2 Hence sprang the' apostles' honour'd 
Sacred beyond heroic fame ; [name, 
In humbler forms, before our eyes, 
Pastors and teachers hence arise. 

3 From Christ they all their gifts derive, 
And, fed by Christ, their graces live : 
While, guarded by his mighty hand, 
'Midst all the rage of hell they stand. 

4 So shall the bright succession run 
Through all the courses of the sun ; 
While unborn churches, by their care, 
Shall rise and flourish large and fair. 

5 Jesus, now teach our hearts to know 
The spring whence all these blessings flow; 
Pastors and people shout thy praise, 
Through the long round of endless days.

1060 Earthly tilings vain and transitory. L. M. 

HOW vain is all beneath the skies ! 
How transient every earthly bliss! 
How slender all the fondest ties 
That bind us to a vv^orld like this! 

2 The evening cloud, the morning dew, 
The with'ring grass, the fading flower, 
Of earthly hopes are emblems true — 
The glory of a passing hour. 

3 But though earth's fairest blossoms die, 
And all beneath the skies is vain, 
There is a brighter world on high, 
Beyond the reach of care and pain, 

4 Then let the hope of joys to come 
Dispel our cares, and chase our fears: 
If Grod be ours, we're trav'ling home, 
Though passing tiirough a vale of tears.

1027 Thanksgiving for national peace. L. M. 

GREAT Ruler of the earth and skies, 
A word of thine almighty breath 
Can sink the world, or bid it rise : 
Thy smile is life, thy frown is death. 

2 When angry nations rush to arms, 
And rage, and noise, and tumult reign. 
And war resounds its dire alarms. 
And slaughter dyes the hostile plain, — 

3 Thy sov'reign eye looks calmly down, 
And "marks their course, and bounds their 

power ; 
Thy law the angry nations own, 
And noise and war are heard no more. 

4 Then peace returns with balmy wing; 
Sweet peace, with her what blessings fled ! 
Glad plenty laughs, the valleys sing, 
Reviving commerce lifts her head. 

5 To thee we pay our grateful songs; 
Thy kind protection still implore : 

may our hearts, and lives, and tongues, 
Confess thy goodness, and adore.

HE comes! He comes! the Judge severe ! 
The seventh trumpet speaks him near ;

2 From heaven angelic voices sound : 
See the almighty Jesus crown'd :

And glory decks the Saviour's face.

He claims the kingdoms for his own ; 
The kingdoms all obey his word. 

And hail him their triumphant Lord. 

4 Shout, all the people of the sky. 
And all the saints of the Most High ; 
Our Lord, who now his right obtains, 
Forever and forever reiofns. 



Shall stand unmoved amidst them all, 
And smile to see a burning world. 

5 The earth and all the works therein 
Dissolve, by raging flames destroy'd : 
While we survey the awful scene, 
And mount above the fiery void. 

6 By faith we now transcend the skies, 
And on that ruin'd world look down : 
By love above all height we rise. 

And share the everlasting throne.

The darkness of o'erspreading death ;

On Zion's holy towers to shine. 

2 That light shall shine on distant lands, 
And wand'ring tribes, in joyful bands, 
Shall come, thy glory, Lord, to see. 
And in thy courts to worship thee.

Let the glad morning bless our eyes ; 
Ye nations, catch the kindling ray. 
And hail the splendours of the day.

And make the greedy sea restore. 

2 The greedy sea shall field her dead ; 
The earth no more her slain conceal ; 
Sinners shall lift their guilty head. 
And shrink to see a yawning hell. 

3 But we, who now our Lord confess. 
And faithful to the end endure, 

Shall stand in Jesus' righteousness : — 
Stand, as the Rock of Ages, sure. 

4 We, while the stars from heaven shall fall. 
And mountains are on mountains hurVd,

The prosperity of the saints. L. M. 

RENDER thanks to God above, 
The fountain of eternal love. 
Whose mercy firm through ages past 
Hath stood, and shall forever last. 

2 Who can his mighty deeds express, 
Not only vast, but numberless ? 
What mortal eloquence can raise 
His tribute of immortal praise ? 

3 Extend to me that favour, Lord, 
Thou to thy chosen dost afford ; 
When thou return'st to set them free, 
Let thy salvation visit me. 

4 may I worthy prove to see 
Thy saints in full prosperity, — 
That I the joyful choir may join, 
And count thy people's triumph mine I 



God seen in his works. 



L. M. 



THERE is a God — all nature speaks. 
Through earth, and air, and seas, and 
skies ; 
See — from the clouds his glory breaks. 
When earliest beams of morning rise. 

2 The rising sun, serenely bright, 
Throughout the world's extended frame, 
Inscribes, in characters of light. 

His mighty Maker's glorious name. 

3 Ye curious minds, who roam abroad, 
And trace creation's wonders o'er, 
Confess the footsteps of your God ; 
Bow down before him and adore.

AND can I yet delay 
My little all to give ? 
To tear my soul from earth away 
For Jesus to receive ? 

2 Nay, but I yield, I yield ; 
I can hoU out no more : 

1 sink, by dyin_2^ love compell'd, 

And own thee conqueror. 

3 Though late, I all forsake ; 
My friends, my all, resign : 

Gracious Redeemer, take, take, 
And seal me ever thine. 

4 Come, and possess me whole, 
Nor hence again remove ; 

Settle and fix my wav'ring soul 
With all thy weight of love. 

5 My one desire be this, — 
Thy only love to know ; 

To seek and tasre no other bliss, — 
No other good below.

. Thou all-sufficient art :

OTHAT I could repent, 
With all my idols part, 
And to thy gracious eye present 
A humble, contrite heart • 

2 A heart with grief oppress'd. 
For having grieved my God ; 

A troubled heart, that cannot jest 
Till sprinkled with thy blood. 

3 Jesus, on me bestow 
The penitent desire ; 

With true sincerity of woe 
My aching breast inspire.

And melt my hardness down : 

Strike with thy love's resistless stroke, 
And break this heart of stone. 

400 The onZy expiation. S. M. 

PROSTRATE at Jesus' feet, 
A guilty rebel lies ; 
And upward to the mercy-seat 
Presumes to lift his eyes. 

2 Will justice frown me hence ? 
Stay, Lord, the vengeful storm ; 

Forbid it, that Omnipotence 
Should crush a feeble worm. 

3 If sorrow would suffice 
To pay the debt I owe. 

Tears should, fiom both my weeping eyes. 
In ceaseless currents flow, 

4 But tears I will not plead 
To expiate my guilt ; 

No tears, but those which thou hast shed, — 
No blood, but thou hast ?pilt. 



I 5 Think of thy sorrows, Lord I 
And all my sins forgive ; 
Then justice will approve the word 
That bids the sinner- live. 

OuU To ichoin nhould we go, 

AH! whither should I go, 
Burden'd, and sick, and faint ? 
To whom should I my trouble show 

And pour out my complaint? 
My Saviour bids me come ; 

Ah! why do I delay? 
He calls the weary sinner home, 
And yet from him I stay. 

2 What is it keeps me back. 
From -wliich I cannot part, 

Which will not let the Saviour take 

Possession of my heart? 
Searcher of hearts, in mine 

Thy trying power display; 
Into its darkest corners shine, 

And take the veil away. 

3 I now believe, in thee, 
Compassion reigns alone; 

According to my faith, to me 

let it, Lord, be done ! 
In me is all the bar, 

Which thou Avouldst fain remove : 
Remove it, and I shall declare 

That God is only love. 

IUD I On heginning a new year. 

OUR few revolving years, 
How swift they glide away; 
How short the term of life appears 
When past — but as a day! — 

2 A dark and cloudy day, 
Clouded by grief and sin; 

A host of enemies without, 
Distressing fears within.

But through the Saviour's blood.

bbO Tlie wanderer returning. 8. M. 

HOW oft this wretched heart 
Has wander'd from the Lord ; 
How oft ray roving tlioaghts depart, 
Forgetful of his word 

2 Yet mercy calls, — Return ; 
Saviour, to thee I come : 

My vile ingratitude I mourn; 
take the wand'rer home 1 

3 Thy love, so free, so sweet, 
Blest Saviour, I adore ; 

keep me at thy sacred feet, 
And let me rove no more. 

Do*) TJie Iiedeemer''s triumphant reign. S M. 

OTHOU whom we adore. 
To bless our earth again, ' 

xYssume thine own almighty power, 

And o'er the nations reign. 
The world's Desire and Hope, 
All power to thee is given ; 
Now set the last great empire up, 
Eternal Lord of heaven. 

2 Where all thy laws are spurn'd, 
Thy holy name profaned. 

And where the ruin'd world has mourn' d, 
With blood of millions staiu'd: 

Reveal the glorious scene ; 
The heathen claim for thine; 

And there the endless reign begin 
With majesty divine. 

3 A gracious Saviour, thou 
Wilt all thy creatures bless ; 

And every knee to thee shall bow, 

And every tongue confess. 
According to thy word. 

Now be thy grace reveal' d ; 
And with the knowledge of the Lord, 

Let all the earth be fiU'd.

AND mu.«t this body die — 
This well-wiou_'ht frame decay? 
And must these active limbs of mine 
Lie mould' ring in the clay ? 

2 Corruption, earth, and worms 
Shall but refine this flesh. 

Till my triumphant spirit comes 
To put It on afresh. 

3 God my Redeemer lives, 
And ever from the skies 

Looks down, and watches all my dust, 
Till he shall bid i,. rise. 

4 Array'd in glorious grace 
Shall these vile bodies shine, 

And every shape, and every face, 
Be heavenly and divine. 

5 These lively hopes we owe. 
Lord, to thy dying love; 

may we bless thy grace below, 

And sing thy grace above I

And break my stubborn heart. 

2 Saviour, and Prince of peace I 
The double grace bestow; 

Unloose the bands of wickedness, 

And let the captive go : 
Grant me my sins to feel, 

And then the load remove : 
Wound, and pour in, my wounds to heal, 

The balm of pard'ning love.

And know the things of God, — 
The things which freely of his love 
He hath on us bestow'd. 

2 His Spirit, which he gave, 
Now dwells in us, we know ; 

The ^vitness in ourselves we have, 
And all its fruits we show. 

3 The meek and lowly heart. 
That in our Saviour wa«, 

To us his Spirit does impart, 
And sign:^ us with his cross. 

4 Our nature's turn'd, our mind 
Transform'd in all its powers; 

And both the witnesses are join'd, — 
Thy Spirit, Lord, with ours. 

5 Whate'er our pard'ning Lord 
Commands, we gladly do ; 

And, guided by his sacred word. 
We all his steps pursue. 

6 His glory our design, 

We live our God to please ; 
And rise, with filial fear divine, 
To perfect holiness.

¥HEN death before my sight 
Appears in dire array. 
Unequal to the dreadful fight, 
My courage faints away. 

2 How shall I meet this foe. 
Whose frown my soul alarms ? 

Dark horror sits upon his brow, 
And vict'ry waits his arms. 

3 But with the eye of faith, 
Piercing beyond the grave, 

I see that Friend who conquers death, 
Whose arm alone can save.

249 Thi eternal Sabbath. S. M. 

HAIL to the Sabbath-day ! 
The day divinely given, 
When men to God their homage pay, 
And earth draws near to heaven. 

2 Lord, in this sacred hour 
Within thy courts we bend, 

And bless thy love, and own thy power, 
Our Father and our Friend. 

3 But thou art not alone 

In courts by mortals trod ; 
Xor only is the day thine own 
When man draws near to Grod : — 

4 Thy temple is the arch 
Of yon unmeasured sky; 

Thy Sabbath, the stupendous march 
Of vast eternity. 

5 Lord, may that holier day 
Dawn on thy servants' sight ; 

And purer worship may we pay 
In heaven's unclouded light. 

— .)^ Joyful in the hoxtse of prayer. 

GLAD was my heart to hear 
My old companions say, — 
Come, in the house of God appear ; 
For 'tis a holy day. 

2 Thither the tribes repair. 
Where all are wont to meet; 

And, joyful in the house of prayer, 
Bend at the mercy-seat 

3 Pray for Jerusalem, 
The city of our God ! 

Lord, send thy blessings down to them 
That love the dear abode I 

4 Within these walls, may peace 
And harmony be found ! 

Zion, in all thy palaces, 

Prosperity abound. 
') For friends and brethren dear 

Our prayer shall never cease : 
Oft. as they meet for worship here, 

God send his people peace ! 

J U44 PraUefor protecting mercy. 

WHEX o'er the deep we rode. 
By winds and storms assail'd ; 
We call'd upon the ocean's God, 
Whose mercy never fail'd. 

2 The tempest heard his voice, 
The winds obey'd his will ; 

The elements withheld their noise, 
And all the floods were still. 

3 With joy we hail'd the shore, 
And safe the vessel moor'd ; 

With grateful hearts, that happy hoar, 
We praised the ocean's Lord. 

4 Thus, while o'er seas we roam, 
Thy goodness. Lord, we see ; 

Though distant from our native home, 
We are not far from thee. 



8. M. 



5 And when this life is past, 
And we are call'd to die, 

may we see thy face at last 
In realms beyond the sky. 

6 Then, as we join the bands 
Beyond the swelling wave, 

We'll praise thee with uplifled hands, 
And sing thy power to save. 

OOO For watchfulness and circumspection, 8. M. 

BID me of men beware, 
And to my ways take heed ; 
Discern their every secret snare, 
And circumspectly tread. 

2 may I calmly wait 
Thy succours from above ; 

And stand against their open hate, 
And well-dissembled love. 

3 My spirit, Lord, alarm, 
When men and devils join : 

'Gainst all the powers of Satan arm, 
In panoply divine. 

4 may I set my face. 
His onsets to repel ; 

Quench all his fiery darts, and chaao 
The fiend to his own helL 

5 But, above all, afraid 
Of my own bosom foe, 

Still let me seek to thee for aid,— 
To thee my weakness show : 

6 Hang on thy arm alone 
With self-distrusting care, 

And deeply in the Spirit groan 
The never-ceasing prayer. 

ItZZ Liibourers retcarded. S. M. 

HAPPY, happy place. 
Where saints and angels meet I 
There we shall see each other's face, 
And all our brethren greet. 

2 The Church of the first-bom, 
We shall with them be blest, 

And, crown'd with endless joy, return 
To our eternal rest. 

3 With joy we shall behold. 
In yonder blest abode. 

The patriarchs and prophets old, 
And all the saints of God. 

4 Abrah'm and Isaac, there. 
And Jacob, shall receive 

The foU'wers of their faith and prayer, 
Who now in bodies live. 

5 We shall our time beneath 
Live out in cheerful hope, 

And fearless pass the vale of death, 
And gain the mountain top. 

6 To gather home his own, 
God shall his angels send, 

And bid our bliss, on earth begua, 
In deathless triumphs end.

COME, ye that love the Lord, 
And let your joys be known ; 
Join in a song with sweet accord, 

While ye surround his throne. 
Let those refuse to sin<^ 

Who never knew our God ; 
But servants of the heavenly King 
May speak their joys abroad. 

2 The God that rules on high, 
That all the earth surveys, 

That rides upon the stormy sky, 

And calms the roaring seas; 
This awful God is ours, 

Oar Father and our Love; 
lie will send down his heavenly powers 

To carry us above. 

3 There we shall see his face, 
And never, never sin ; 

There, from the rivers of his grace, 

Drink endless pleasures in : 
Yea, and before we rise 

To that immortal state, 
The thoughts of such amazing bliss 

Should constant joys create. 

4 The men of grace have found 
Glory begun below: 

Celestial fruit on earthly ground 
From faith and hope may grow : 

Then let our songs abound, 
And every tear be dry : 

We're marching through Immanuel's ground 
To fairer worlds on high.

SOLDIERS of Christ, lay hold 
On faith's victorious shield; 
Arm'd with that adamant and gold, 

Be sure to win the field : 
If faith surround your heart, 

Satan shall be subdued ; 
EepelFd his every fiery dart, 
And quench'd with Jesus' blood. 

2 Jesus hath died for you ; 

W^hat can his love withstand ? 
Believe, hold fast your shield, and who 

Shall pluck you from his hand ? 
Believe that Jesus reigns ; 

All power to him is given : 
Believe, till freed from sin's remains; 

Beheve yourselves to heaven.

2 Though high above all praise, 

Above all blessing high. 
Who would not fear his holy Name, 
And laud, and magnify ? 



3 for the living flame, 
From his own altar brought. 

To touch our lips, our souls inspire. 
And wing to heaven our thought. 

4 God is our strength and song. 
And his salvation ours ; 

Then be his love in Christ proclaim'd 
With all our ransom'd powers. 

5 Arise, and bless the Lord; 
The Lord your God adore ; 

Arise and bless his glorious Name, 
Henceforth, for evermore.

SOLDIERS of Christ, arise, 
And put your armour on, 
Strong in the strength which God suppHes 

Through his eternal Son ; 
Strong in the Lord of Hosts, 
And in his mighty power, 
Who in the strength of Jesus trusts, 
Is more than conqueror. 

2 Stand then in his great might, 
With all his strength endued ; 

But take, to arm you for the fight, 

The panoply of God : 
That having all things done. 

And all your conflicts past. 
Ye may o'ercome, through Christ alone, 

And stand entire at last. 

3 Leave no unguarded place, — 
No weakness of the soul; 

Take every virtue, every grace, 

And fortify the whole : 
Indissolubly join'd, 

To battle all proceed ; 
But arm yourselves with all the mind 

That was in Christ your Head.

For thou alone canst heal ; 

Thy word can bring a sweet relief

I fear to call thee mine; 

Q'he springs of comfort seera to fail. 
And all my hopes decline.

And still my soul would cleave to thee 
Though prostrate in the dust.

Confessing all my sin ; 

Lord, I am knocking at the gate ; 
Open, and take me in.

Give ear to my complaint; 

Thou bidd'st the mourning soul rejoice, 
Thou comfortest the faint. 

4 Glory to God above, — 
The waters soon will cease ; 

For, lo ! the swift returning dove 
Bring-s home the sign of peace,

And dangers threaten loud; 

Jehovah's covenant is sure, — 
His bow is in the cloud.

Thy steadfast truth declare •, 
And publish, with our latest breath, 
Thy love and guardian care. 

O^O The Redeemer's tears. 8. M. 

DID Christ o'er sinners weep, 
And shall our cheeks be dry ? 
Let floods of penitential grief, 
Burst forth from every eye. 

2 The Son of God in tears 
The wond'ring angels see ; 

Be thou astonish'd, O my soul; 
He shed those tears for thee. 

3 He wept that we might weep; 
Each sin demands a tear: 

In heaven alone no sin is found, 
And there's no weeping there.

71Z Sympathy 07id viutual love. B. M. 

BLEST be the tie that binds 
Our hearts in Christian love; 
The fellowship of kindred minds 
Is like to that above. 

2 Before our Father's throne, 
"We pour our ardent prayers ; 

Our fears, our hopes, our aims are one, — 
Our comforts and our cares. 

3 We share our mutual woes; 
Our mutual burdens bear ; 

And often for each other flows 
The sympathizing tear. 

4 When we asunder part, 
It gives us inward pain ; 

But we shall still be joined in heart, 
And hope to meet again. 

5 This glorious hope revives 
Our courage by the way ; 

While each in expectation lives, 
And longs to see the day. 

6 From sorrow, toil, and pain 
And sin we shall be free ; 

And perfect love and friendship reign 
Through all eternity. 

OUO Restore my peace. 8. M. 

AXD wilt thou yet be found, 
And may I still draw near ? 
Then li^ten to the plaintive sound 
Of a poor sinner's prayer. 

2 Jesus, thine aid afford, 

If still the same thou art: 
To thee I look, to thee, my Lord, 
I hft my helpless heart. 

3 Thou seest my troubled breast, 
The stragglings of ray will. 

The foes that interrupt my rest, 
The agonies I feel. 

4 my offended Lord, 
Restore my inward peace ; 

I know thou canst; pronounce the word, 
And bid the tempest cease. 

5 I long to see thy face ; 
Thy Spirit I implore, — 

The living water of thy grace. 
That I may thirst no more. 

{,)\ Tlie sure foundation. 

IN every trying hour 
My soul to Jesus flies ; 

1 trust in his almighty power 

When swelling billows rise. 

2 His comforts bear me up ; 
I trust a faithful God; 

The sure foundation of my hope 
Is in rny Saviour's blood. 

3 Loud hallelujahs sing 
To our Redeemer's Name ; 

In joy or sorrow — life or death 
His love is still the same. 



B.M. 



bJ4 Sweet communion. S. >L 

BLEST are the sons of peace, 
Whose hearts and hopes are one; 
Whose kind designs to serve and please 
Through all their actions run. 

2 Blest is the pious house 
Where zeal and friendship meet; 

Their songs of praise, their mingled vows, 
Make their communion sweet. 

3 Thus on the heavenly hills 
The saints are blest above, 

Where joy like morning dew distils, 
And all the air is love. 

77b All-sufficiency of Ilis grace. S. M. 

JESUS, my Lord, my God, 
Thy promise I embrace; 
And hail, beneath the Father's rod. 
Thy all-sufiicient grace. 

2 My oft-repeated prayer 
The kindest answer gains, 

When, by thy gracious aid, I bear 
Life's keen and varied pains. 

3 Should dread of want oppress, 
And men or fiends assail, — 

Infirmities my frame oppress, 
And earthly comforts fail, — 

4 Still may I trust in thee. 
And calm each rising fear ; 

For none of these can injure me 
While thou, Christ, art near. 

5 My faith as gold refine; 
Each grace and virtue prove ; 

That in my spotless life may shine 
The light of perfect love. 

6 Thus shall thy mighty power 
L'pon thy servant rest ; 

Who glories in the trying hour. 
By thee upheld and blest. 

O ( The presence and grace ofJesua. 8. M. 

OTHOU who art the Light 
Of all thy saints below, 
That we may worship thee aright. 
Thy sov'reign grace bestow. 

2 Our rising world obey'd 

Thy Godhead's high command; 
And all the heavenly host are sway'd 
By thy creating hand. 

3 Yet all things made anew 
To wond'ring mortals seem. 

When the Eternal Word we view 
Descending to redeem. 

4 0, be thou present now. 
And make thy mercy known, 

While at thy footstool. Lord, we bow, 
And our Deliv'rer own. 

5 Then shall we live to thee, 
And honour this thy day; 

Thine own devoted servants be, 
And never from thee stray.

And glorify thy grace.

b t\J For diligence and leatchfalness. S. M. 

A CHARGE to keep I have, 
A God to glorify ; 
A never-dying soul to save, 

And fit it for the sky. 
To serve the present age, 

My calling to fulfil. — 
may it all my poAvers engage, 
To do my Master's will. 

2 Arm me with jealous care, 

As in thy sight to live ; 
And 0, thy servant, Lord, prepare, 

A strict account to give. 
Help me to watch and pray. 

And on thyself rely, 
Assured, if I my trust betray, 

I shall forever die. 

84 I -Vo?c ice see through a glass, darkly. S. M. 

THY way is in the sea; 
Tliy paths we cannot trace; 
Nor solve, Lord, the mystery 
Of thy unbounded grace. 

2 11 ere the dark veils of sense 
Our captive souls surround ; 

^lysterious deeps of providence 
Our wond'ring thoughts confound. 

3 As through a glass we see 
The wonders of thy love ; 

How little do we know of thee, 
Or of the joys above ! 

4 In part we know thy will, 
And bless thee for the sight : 

Soon will thy love the rest reveal 
In glory's clearer light, 

5 With joy shall we survey 
Thy providence and grace ; 

And spend an everlasting day 
In wonder, love, and praise. 

000 77ie horrors of the second death. S. M. 

WHERE shall rest be found,— 
Rest for the weary soul ? 
'Twere vain the ocean's depths to sound. 
Or pierce to either pole. 

2 The world can never give 
The bliss for which we sigh ; 

'Tis not the whole of life to live, 
Nor all of death to die. 

3 Beyond this vale of tears 
There is a life above. 

Unmeasured by the flight of years; 
And all that life is love. 

4 There is a death, whose pang 
Outlasts the fleeting breath: 

what eternal horrors hang 
Around the second death ! 

5 Thou God of truth and grace ! 
Teach us that death to shun ; 

Lest we be banish'd from thy face. 
For evermore undone. 



o74 God's absence deprecated. 8. M. 

OTHOU, whose mercy hears 
Contrition's humble sigh ; 
Whose hand, indulgent, wipes the tears 
From sorrow's weeping eye ; — 

2 See, at thy throne of grace, 
A wretched wand'rer mourn : 

Hast thou not bid me seek thy face ? 
Hast thou not said, — Return ? 

3 Shall guilty fears prevail 
To drive me from thy feet ? 

let not this last refuge fail, — 
This only safe retreat. 

4 Absent from thee, my Light, 
Without one cheering ray, — 

Through dangers, fears, and gloomy night, 
How desolate my way I 

5 On this benighted heart, 
W^ith beams of mercy shine ; 

And let thy voice again impart 
A taste of joy divine. 

obi/ For victory in the dying hour. 8. M. 

WHEN on the blink of death 
My trembling soul shall stand, 
W^aiting to pass that awful flood, 
Great God ! at thy command ; — 

2 When every scene of life 
Stands ready to depart; 

And the last sigh that shakes the frame 
Shall rend this bursting heart ; — 

3 Thou Source of joy supreme, 
Whose arm alone can save, — 

Dispel the darkness that surrounds 
The entrance to the grave. 

4 Lay thy supporting hand 

, Beneath my sinking head ; 
And with a ray of love divine 
Illume my dying bed. 

5 Leaning on Jesus' breast. 
May I lesign my breath ; 

And in his kind embraces lose 
The bitterness of death. 

O J i riumhle confession. 8. M. 

IN sorrow I lament, 
Before thy feet, my God, 
My pa.ssion, pride, and discontent, — • 
My vile ingratitude. 

2 Ne'er was a heart more base 
And false than mine has been ; 

More faithless to its promises, — 
More prone to every sin. 

3 How long, Lord, shall I feel 
These struggles in my breast ? 

When wilt thou bow my stubborn will, 
And give my conscience rest? 

4 Break thou, break the charm. 
And set the captive free : 

Reveal, great God, thy mighty arm, 
And haste to rescue me.

In Jesus' guardian love. 

2 As round Jerusalem

My Father's hand prepares the cup, 
And what he wills is best,

And suits the will divine, — 

By earth and hell in vain withstood, 
I know it shall be mine.

To fnistratehis decree; 

They cannot keep a blessing back, 
By Heaven design'd for me.

And hymns of praise we sing. 

3 While in thy house we kneel, 
With trust and holy fear. 

Thy mercy and thy truth reveal. 
And lend a gracious ear.

Countless, invisible ; 
From thrones of glory driven.

They throng the air, and darken heaven, 
And rule this lower world. 

2 But shall believers fear ? 
But shall beUevers fly? 

Or see the bloody cross appear, 

And all their powers defy ? 
By all hell's host withstood. 

We all hell's host o'erthrow ; 
And conqu'ring them through Jesus' blood. 

We on to conquer go.

,)ol- Tlie pilgrim" 8 home. S. M. 

WHILE through this world we roam, 
From infancy to age, 
Heaven is the Christian pilgrim's home, 

His rest at every stage. 
2 Thither his soul ascends, 

Eternal joys to share ; 
There his adoring spirit bends. 

While here he kneels in prayer. 
3. His freed affections rise, 

To fix on things above. 
Where all his hope of glory lies, — 

Where all is perfect love. 

4 There we our treasure place; 
There let our hearts be found ; 

That still, where sin abounded, grace 
May more and more abound. 

5 Henceforth our converse be 
With Christ before the throne; 

Ere long we eye to eye shall see, 
And know as we are known. 

;]24 The Day-star from on high. 8. M. 

MY former hopes are fled ; 
My terror now begins: 

1 feel, alas ! that I am dead 
In trespasses and sins. 

2 Ah, whither shall I fly ? 

I hear the thunder roar : — 
The law proclaims destruction nigh, 
And vengeance at the door. 

3 When I review my ways, 
I dread impending doom : 

But, hark ! a frien(fly whisper says, — 
Flee from the wrath to come. 

4 With trembling hope, I see 
A glimm'ring from afar ; 

A beam of day that shines for me, 
To save me from despair. 

5 Forerunner of the sun. 

It marks the pilgrim's way 
I'll gaze upon it while I run, 
And watch the rising day. 

55o Tlie Lord'ft Prayer. B. M. 

OUR heavenly Father, hear 
The prayer we offer now; 
Thy name be hallow'd far and near ; 
To thee all nations bow. 

2 Thy kingdom come ; thy will 
On earth be done in love, 

As saints and seraphim fulfil 
Thy perfect law above. 

3 Our daily bread supply 
While by thy word we live; 

The guilt of our iniquity 
Forgive, as we forgive. 

4 From dark temptation's power, 
From Satan's wiles, defend ; 

Deliver in the evil hour, 
And guide us to the end, 
15 



5 Thine shall forever be 

Glory and power divme ; 
The vceptre, throne, and majesty 

Of heaven and earth are thine. 
G Thus humbly taught to pray 

By thy beloved Son, 
Through him we come to thee, and say, — 

All for his sake be done. 

OO Claiming the promise. S. M. 

JESUS, we look to thee. 
Thy promised presence claim ; 
Thou in the midst of us shalt be, 
Assembled in thy name : 

2 Thy name salvation is. 
Which here we come to prove : 

Thy name is life, and health, and peace, 
And everlasting Iovh. 

3 Not in the name of pride 
Or selfishness we meet ; 

From nature's paths we turn aside, 
And worldly thoughts forget. 

4 We meet the grace to take. 
Which thou hast freely given ; 

We meet on earth for thy dear sake. 
That we may meet in heaven. 

5 Present we know thou art, 
But 0, thyself reveal ; 

Now, Lord, let every bounding heart 
The mighty comfort feel. 

6 may thy quick' ning voice 
The death of sin remove ; 

And bid our inmost souls rejoice. 
In hope of perfect love. 

497 PuHty of heart. S. M. 

BLEST are the pure in heart. 
For they shall see our God ; 
The secret of the Lord is theirs; 

Their soul is his abode.

He doth himself impart. 
And for his temple and his throne 
Selects the pure in heart 

lob 7%e blessings of His grace. fi. M 

BLEST Comforter divine. 
Whose rays of heavenly love 
Amid our gloom and darkness shine. 
And point our souls above ; — 

2 Thou, who with still small voice 
Dost stop the sinner's way. 

And bid the mourning saint rejoice. 
Though earthly joys decay ; — 

3 Thou, whose inspiring breath 
Can make the cloud of care, 

And e'en the gloomy vale of death, 
A smile of glory wear; — 

4 Thou, who dost fill the heart 
With love to all our race, — 

Blest Comforter ! to us impart

GRACE ! 'tis a charming sound. 
Harmonious to the ear; 
Heaven with the echo shall resound. 
And all the earth shall hear. 

2 Grace first contrived a way 
To save rebellious man ; 

And all the steps that grace display. 
Which drew the wondrous plan. 

3 Grace taught my roving feet 
To tread the heavenly road ; 

^Lud new supplies each hour I meet, 
While pressing on to God. 

i Grace all the work shall crown, 
Through everlasting days ; 

it lays in heaven the topmost stone, 
And well deserves our praise. 

.* /M Ueaioeii upon earth. 

MY God, my life, my love, 
To thee, to thee I call : 

1 cannot live if thou remove. 
For thou art all in all. 

2 Thy shining grace can cheer 
This dungeon where I dwelt : 

'Tis paradise when thou art here,- 
If thou depart, 'tis hell. 

3 The smilings of thy face, 
How amiable they are 1 

'Tis heaven to rest in thine embrace, 
And nowhere else but there. 

4 To thee, and thee alone. 
The angels owe their bliss ; 

They sit around thy gracious throne, 
And dwell where Jesus is. 

5 Not all the harps above 
Can make a heavenly place, 

If God his residence remove, 
Or but conceal his face. 

6 Nor earth, nor all the sky, 
Can one delight afford, 

Nor yield one drop of real joy, 
Without thy presence, Lord 



8. M. 



7 Thou art the sea of love, 
Where all my pleasures roll : 

The circle where my passions move, 
And centre of my souL 

Oo4 The loving-kindness of the Lord. 

BLESS the Lord, my soul; 



8. M. 







His grace to thee proclaim ; 
And all that is within me, joiil 
To bless his holy Name. 

2 The Lord forgives thy sins, — 
Prolongs thy feeble breath ; 

He healeth thine infirmities, 
And ransoms thee fiom death, 

3 He clothes thee with his love, — 
Upholds thee with his truth ; 

And hke the eagle he renews 
The vigour of thy youth. 

4 Then bless his holy Name 

Whose grace hath made thee whole ; 
Whose loving-kindness crowns thy days : 
bless the Lord, my soul.

S.M. 



THEE, King of saints, we praise 
For this our Hving bread ; 
Nourish' d by thy preserving grace, 
And at thy table fed. 

2 Yet still a higher seat 
We in thy kingdom claim, 

Who here begin by faith to eat 
The supper of the Lamb. 

3 That gloriou?:, heavenly prize 
We surely shall attain. 

And, in the palace of the skies, 
With thee forever reipfn.

Victory is on the Lord's side. 



S. H. 



ARISE, ye saints, arise ! 
The Lord our leader is; 
The foe before his banner flies. 
And victory is His. 

2 We follow thee, our Guide, 
Our Saviour, and our King; 

We follow thee, through grace supplied 
From heaven's eternal spring. 

3 We soon shall see the day 
When all our toils shall cease ; 

When we shall cast our arms away, 
And dwell in endless peace. 

4 This hope supports us here. 
It makes our burdens light ; 

'Twill serve our drooping hearts to cheer, 
Till faith shall end in sight: — 

5 Till, of the prize possess'd, 
^Ve hear of war no more ; 

And ever with our Leader rest 
On yonder peaceful shore.

1 1 Joy from the certain ty of His resurrection. 

THE Lord is risen indeed ; 
The grave hath lost its prey; 
AVith him shall rise the ransom'd seed, 
To reign in endless day. 

2 The Lord is risen indeed; 

He hves, to die no more; 
He lives, his people's cause to plead, 

Whose curse and shame he bore. 



3 The Lord is risen indeed ; 
Attending angels, hear; 

Up to the courts of heaven, with 
The joyful tidings bear : — 

4 Then take your golden lyres, 
And strike each cheerful chord; 

Join, all ye bright celestial choirs, 
To sinsr our risen Lord. 



ZA^L Delight in ordinances. 8. M. 

WELCOME, sweet day of rest, 
That saw tlie Lord arise : 
Welcome to this reviving breast. 
And these rejoicing eyes ! 

2 The King himself comes near, 
And feasts his saints to-day ; 

Here we may sit, and see him here, 
And love, and praise, and pray. 

3 One day in such a place. 
Where thou, my God, art seen. 

Is sweeter than ten thousand days 
Of pleasurable sin. 

4 My willing soul would stay 
In such a frame as this, 

And sit and sing herself away 
To everlasting bliss. 

Zoyj Universal gladness and joy. S. M, 

GLORY to God on high, 
Our peace is made with Heaven; 
The Son c^f God came down to die, 
That we might be forgiven. 

2 His precious blood was shed, 
His body bruised, for sin ; 

Remember this in eating bread. 
An i this in drinking wine. 

3 Approach his royal board. 
In his rich garments clad ; 

Join every tongue to praise the Lord, 
And every heart be glad. 

4 The Father gives the Son ; 
The Son, his flesh and blood : 

The Spirit seals ; and faith puts on 
The righteousness of God. . 

67 His name is glorious. 8. M. 

ALMIGHTY Maker, God, 
How glorious is thy Name ; 
Thy wonders how diffused abroad, 
TlirouQ:hout creation's frame. 



2 In native white and red 
The rose and lily stand. 

And, free from pride, their beauties spread. 
To show thy skilful hand. 

3 The lark mounts up the sky. 
With unambitious song; 

And bears her Maker's praise on higji 
Upon her artless tongue. 

4 Fain would I rise and sing 
To my Creator too ; 

Fain would my heart adore my Kiog, 
And give him praises due. 

5 Let joy and worship spend 
The remnant of my days ; 

And to my God my soul ascend 
In sweet perfumes of praise. 

2 i 7 A foretaste of glory. 8. M. 

WHAT deUght is this. 







Which now in Christ we know, — 



An earnest of our glorious bliss. 
Our heaven begun below I 

2 When He the table spreads, 
How royal is the cheer; 

With rapture we lift up our heads, 
And own that God is here. 

3 The Lamb for sinners slain, 
Who died to die no more, 

Let all the ransom'd sons of men, 
With all his hosts, adore. 

4 Let earth and heaven be join'd. 
His glories to display. 

And hymn the Saviour of mankind 
In one eternal day. 



1780 



He ruleth all things well. 



B. M. 



GIYE to the winds thy fears ; 
Hope, and be undismay'd ; 
God hears thy sighs and counts thy tears 

God shall lift up thy head ; 
Through waves, and clouds, and storms, 

He gently clears thy way ; 
Wait thou his time, so shall this night 
Soon end in joyous day. 

2 Still heavy is thy heart ? 
Still sink thy spirits down ? 

Cast off the weight, — let fear depart, 

And every care be gone. 
T\Tiat though thou rulest not; 

Yet heaven, and earth, and hell, 
Proclaim, — God sitteth on the throne, 

And ruleth all things well. 

3 Leave to his sov'reign sway 
To choose and to command : 

So shalt thou, wond'ring, own his way, 
How wise, how strong his hand ! 

Far, far above thy thought 
His counsel shall appear. 

When fully he the work hath wrought 
That caused thy needless fear.

707 Meeting, after absence. S. M. 

AND are we yet alive, 
And see each other's face ? 
Glory and praise to Jesus give, 

For his redeeming grace. 
Preserved by power divine 

To full salvation here, 
Ag lin in Jesus' piaise we join, 
A'^d in his sight appear. 

2 What troubles have we seen ! 
What conflicts have we past ! 

Fightings without, and fears within, 

Since we assembled last! 
But out of all the Lord 

Hath brought us by his love ; 
And still he doth his help afford, 

And hides our life above, 

3 Then let us make our boast 
Of bis redeeming power, 

Which saves us to the uttermost, 

Till we can sin no more : 
Let us take up the cross, 

Till we the crown obtain ; 
And gladly reckon all things loss, 

So we may Jesus gain. 

783 Walking by faith. S. M. 

IF, on a quiet sea, 
Tow'rd heaven we calmly sail, 
With grateful hearts, God, to thee. 
We'll own the fav'ring gale. 

2 But should the surges rise, 
And rest delay to come, 

Blest be the sorrow, kind the storm, 
Which drives us nearer home. 

3 Soon shall our doubts and fears 
AH yield to thy control: 

Thy tender mercies shall illume 

The midnight of the soul. 
i Teach us, in every state, 

To make thy will our own ; 
And when the joys of sense depart, 

To live by faith alone. 

2\^h Chj-ini, the only nource of salvation. S. M. 
OD's holy law transgress'd, 



S. SI. 



& 



Speaks nothing but despair; 
Convinced of guilt, with grief oppress'd, 
We find no comfort there. 

2 Not all our groans and tears, 
Nor works which we have done, 

Nor vows, nor promises, nor prayers, 
Can e'er for sin atone. 

3 Relief alone is found 

In Jesus' precious blood v 
Tis this that heals the mortal wound, 
And reconciles to God. 

4 This is salvation's source ; 
And all our hopes arise 

Frf»m Him, who, hanging on the cross, 
A spotless victim dies. 



o4y And yet there is room. 

YE wretched, starving poor, 
Behold a royal feast! 
Where mercy spreads her bounteous store 
For every humble guest. 

2 See, Christ, with open arms. 
Invites, and bids you come ; 

stay not back, though fear alarms; 
For yet there still is room. 

3 come, and with us taste 
The blessings of his love ; 

While hope expects the sweet repast 
Of nobler joys above. 

4 There, with united voice, 
Before the' eternal throne, 

Ten thousand thousand souls rejoice 
In ecstacies unknown, 

5 Ten thousand thousand more 
Are welcome stih to come; 

Ye longing souls, the grace adore; 
Approach, — there yet is room. 



Ot/O Afflictions blessed. 

HOW tender is thy hand, 
thou most gracious Lord I 
Afflictions came at thy command, 
And left us at thy word. 

2 How gentle was the rod 
That chasten'd us for sin ! 

How soon we found a smiling God 
Where deep distress had been! 

3 A Father's hand we felt, 
A Father's love we knew : 

'Mid tears of penitence we knelt, 
And found his promise true. 

4 Now will we bless the Lord, 
And in his strength confide : 

Jehovah ever be adored. 
There is no God beside. 

OOL Hardness of heart lamented. 

OTHAT I could revere 
My much offended God; 
that I could but stand in fear 
Of thy afflicting rod ! 

2 If mercy cannot draw, 

Thou by thy threat'nings move, 
And keep an abject soul in awe. 
That will not yield to love. 

3 Let me with horror fly 
From every sinful snare ; 

Nor longer, in my Judge's eye, 
My Judge's anger dare. 

4 Thou great, tremendous God, 
The conscious awe impart ; 

The grace be now on me bestow'd, — 
The tender, fleshly heart. 

5 For Jesus' sake alone. 
The stony heart remove ; 

And melt at lust, melt me down, 
Into tiie mould of love.

COME, sound his praise abroad, 
And hymns of glory sing : 
Jehovah is the sov'reign God, 
The universal King. 

2 He form'd the deeps unknown, 
He gave the seas their bound ; 

The wat'ry worlds are all liis own, 
And all the solid ground, 

3 Come, worship at his throne, 
Come, bow before the Lord; 

We are his works, and not our own, 
He form'd us by his word. 

4 To-day attend his voice. 
Nor dare provoke his rod ; 

Come, like the people of his choice. 
And own your gracious God.

JESrS, my strength, my hope. 
On thee I cast my care ; 
With humble confidence look up, 

And know thou hear'st my prayer. 
Give me on thee to wait. 
Till I can all things do; 
On thee, — almighty to create, 
Almighty to renew. 

2 I want a sober mind, 
A self-renouncing will, 

That tramples down, and casts behind, 

The baits of pleasing ill: 
A soul inured to pain. 

To hardship, griefj and loss; 
Bold to take up, firm to sustain, 

The consecrated cross. 

3 I want a godly fear, 

A quick discerning eye, 
That looks to thee when sin is near, 

And sees the tempter fly : 
A spirit still prepared. 

And arm'd with jealous care; 
Forever standing on its guard, 

And watching unto prayer.

But died without the sight.

And tuneful notes employ ;

And deserts learn the joy.

Through all the earth abroad :

Will here all good provide : 

While Christ is rich, can I be poor? 
What can I want beside?

To love and please thee more.

And dwell on earth no more 1

And share his sacrifice. 

3 Who thus our faith employ 
His suff'rings to record. 

E'en now we mournfully enjoy 
Communion with our Lord.

And shall with him arise ;

Shall lift us to the skies.

The way their Lord has gone ?

The kingdom to possess.

LORD, in thy hand I lie, 
And wait thy will to prove ;

Then kindle in my soul a fire 
Which shall forever shine.

fix in me thy home ; 
So shall I cry to all mankind, — 

Come to the waters, come. 
Jesus is full of grace ; 

To all his bowels move ; 
Behold in me, ye fallen race. 

That God is only love. 

i i J Whoso trtisteth in the Lord shall be safe. S &£. 

COMMIT thou all thy griefs 
And ways into His hands, — 
To his sure trust and tender care 

Who earth and heaven commands; 
Who points the clouds their course, 

W^hom winds and seas obey : 
He shall direct thy wand'ring feet,— 
He shall prepare thy way. 

2 Thou on the Lord rely. 

So, safe, shalt thou go on ; 
Fix on his work thy steadfast eye, 

So shall thy work be done. 
No profit canst thou gain 

By self-consuming care ; 
To him commend thy cause, — his ear 

Attends the softest prayer.

985 Iicill gather all nations. 8. M. 

FATHER of boundless grace, 
Thou hast in part fulfiU'd 
Thy promise made to Adam's race, 

In God incainate seal'd. 
A few from every land 

At first to Salem came, 
And saw the wonders of thy hand, 
And saw the tongues of flame. 

2 Yet still we wait the end, — 
The coming of our Lord ; 

The full accomplishment attend 

Of thy prophetic word. 
Thy promise deeper lies, 

in unexhausted grace; 
And new-discovered worlds arise 

To sing their Saviour's praise. 

3 Beloved for Jesus' sake, 
By him redeem'd of old. 

All nations must come in, and make 

One undivided fold : 
While gather'd in by thee, 

And perfected in one, 
Tliey all at once thy glory see 

In thy co-equal Son. 

lOutJ Our fathers ; where are they f S. M. 

HOW swift the torrent rolls 
That bears us to the sea ; 
The tide that hurries thoughtless souls 
To vast eternity. 

2 Our fathers, where are they, 
With all they call'd their own ? 

Their joys and griefs, and hopes and cares, 
And wealth and honour, gone. 

3 God of our fathers, hear. 
Thou everlasting Friend ! 

While we, as on life's utmost verge. 
Our souls to thee commend. 

4 Of all the pious dead 

May we the footsteps trace, 
Till with them, in the land of light, 
We dwell before thy face. 

1 08b The crowning hour. S. M, 

SERVANT of God, well done! 
Thy glorious warfare's past; 
The battle's fought, the race is won, 
And thou art crown'd at last ; — 

2 Of all thy heart's desire 
Triumphantly possess'd ; 

Lodged by the ministerial choir 
In thy Redeemer's breast. 

3 In condescending love, 

Thy ceaseless prayer He heard ; 
And bade thee suddenly remove 
To thy complete reward. 

4 With saints enthroned on high, 
Thou dost thy Lord proclaim. 

And still to G^d salvation cry, — 
Salvation to the Lamb ! 



5 happy, happy soul ! 
In ecstasies of praise, 

Long as eternal ages roll, 

Thou seest thy Saviour's face. 

6 Redeem'd from earth and pain. 
Ah ! when shall we ascend, 

And all in Jesus' presence reign 
With our translated friend ? 



For a blessing on ministera. 



214 

JESUS, thy servants bless, 
Who, sent by thee, proclaim 
The peace, and joy, and righteousness 

Experienced in thy name : 
The kingdom of our God, — 

Which grace divine imparts ; 
The power of thy victorious blood, — 
Which reigns in faithful hearts. 

2 Their souls with faith supply, — 

With hfe and liberty ; 
And then they preach and testify 

The things concerning thee ; 
And live for this alone, — 

Thy grace to minister; 
And all thou hast for sinners done, 

In Hfe and death declare. 

"7 Love and mercy. 

n REAT God, accept a heart 
vT That pants to sing thy praise; 
Thou, who without beginning art, 

And without end of days: 
Thy goodness is display'd, 

On all thy works impress'd ; 
Thou lovest all thy hands have made, 

But man thou lovest best. 

2 Gracious art thou to all 

Who truly turn to thee; 
hear me, then, for pardon call, 

And show thy grace to me : 
Through mercy reconciled, 

For Jesus' sake forgiven ; 
Receive, Lord, thy favour'd child, 

To sing thy praise in heaven.

SINNERS, the call obey— 
The latest call of grace : 
The day is come, the vengeful day 

Of a devoted race : 
Devils and men combine 

. To plague the faithless seed, 

And phials full of wrath divine 

Are bursting on your head. 

2 Enter into tlie Rock, 

Ye trembling slaves of sin — 
The Rock of your salvation, struck 

And cleft to take you in : 
To shelter the distress'd 

He did the cross endure ; 
Enter into the clefts, and rest 

In Jesus's wounds secure.

And see the Judge, with glory crown'd, 

And see the flaming skies I 

3 How shall I leave my tomb — 
With triumph or regret? 

A fearful or a joyful doom, 

A curse or blessing, meet? 
Will anir*'! bands convey 

Theii- brother to the bar ? 
Or devils drag my soul away, 

To meet its sentence there? 

4 Who can resolve the doubt 
That tears my anxious breast? 

Shall I be with the d;imn'd cast out, 
Or number'd with the blest?

Or with my Saviour dwell ; 

Must come at his command to heaven, 
Or else — depart to hell,

And meet your instant doom.

¥HAT majesty and grace 
Through all the gospel shine ! 
'Tis God that speaks, and we confess 
The doctrine most divine. 

2 Down from his throne on high, 
The mighty Saviour comes ; 

Lays his bright robes of glory by, 
And feeble flesh assumes. 

3 The debt that sinners owed, 
Upon the cross he pays : 

Then through the clouds ascends to God, 
'Midst shouts of loftiest praise. 

4 There our High Priest appears 
Before his Father's throne; 

Mingles his merits with our tears, 
And pours salvation down. 

5 Great Sov'reign, we adore 
Thy justice and thy grace, 

And on thy faithfulness and power 
Our firm dependence place.

To us a Son is given ; 
To us a child is born on earth. 

Who made both earth and heaven. 

2 He reigns above the sky, — 
This universe sustains ; — 

The God supreme, the Lord most high, 
The king Messiah reigns. 

3 The mighty God is He, 
Author of heavenly bliss ; 

The Father of eternity. 

The glorious Prince of peace. 

4 His government shall grow. 

From strength to strength proceed : 
His righteousness the church o'erflow, 
And all the earth o'erspread.

The Judge prepares to come ; 
The' archangel sounds the dreadful trump, 
And wakes the gen'ral doom. 

2 Nature, in wild amaze, 
11 er dissolution mouras; 

Blushes of blood the moon deface, 
The sun to darkness turns. 

3 The living look with dread ; 
The frighted dead arise, 

Start from the monumental bed, 
And lift their ghastly eyes. 

4 Horrors all hearts appal ; 

They quake, they shri( k, they cry ; 
Bid rocks and mountains on them fall; 
But rocks and mountains fly.

Help us in Jesus to believe, — 
To watch, and wait, and pray.

And" rise to meet their Lord.

And to thy perfect peace.

As nothing in thine eye.

THE nations of the earth, 
Almighty Lord, arc thine; 
And in thy works, from nature's birth. 
Thy radiant glories shine. 

2 Thy love hath also sent 
Thy gospel to our race ; 

Unveiling thy divine intent 
Of rich redeeming grace. 

3 When shall these tidings roll 
The spacious earth around. 

And every tribe and every soul 
Receive the joyful sound? 

4 When shall the wand'rers meet, 
That now in darkness rove, 

And, gather'd round Immanuel's feet, 
Sing of his saving love ? 

5 Lord, our efforts own, 
To spread the gospel rays ; 

And rear, on sin's demolish'd throne, 
The temples of thy praise. 

4J i Embracing offered mercy. 

OMY offended God ! 
If now at last I see 
I'hat I have trampled on thy blood, 

And done despite to thee; 
If I begm to wake 

Out of my deadly sleep ; 
Into thine arms of mercy take, 
And there forever keep. 

2 No other right have I, 

Than what the world may claim ; 
And all may to their God draw nigh 

Through faith in Jesus' name: 
Thy death hath wrought the power 

For every sinful soul ; 
That all may know the gracious hour 

And be by faith made whole. 

3 Thou hast for sinners died. 
That all might come to God; 

The cov'nant thou hast ratified, 
And seal'd it with thy blood : 

Thou hast obtain'd the grace 
That all may turn and live ; 

And now thy offer I embrace, — 
Thy mercy I receive.

Nor from thy path depart :

And cheer the fainting heart.

One wretched sinner die ;

From endless misery : — 
Show me the way to shun 

Thy dreadful wrath severe ; 
That when thou comest on thy throne 
I may with joy appear. 

2 Thou art thyself the Way ; 

Thyself in me reveal ; 
So shall I spend my life's short day, 

Obedient to thy will : 
So shall I love my God, 

Because he first loved me ; 
And praise thee in thy bright abode 

To all eternity.

Upon the waves beneath. 

Move with one impulse every mind; 
One soul, one feeling breathe. 

4 The young, the old, inspire 
With wisdom from above; 

And give us heai ts and tongues of fire, 
To pray, and praise, and love. 

5 Spirit of light, explore. 

And chase our gloom away, — 
With lustre shining more and more 
Unto the perfect day.

459 Knotcledge of forgiveness. S. M. 

HOW can a sinner know 
His sins on earth forgiven? 
How can my gracious Saviour show 
My name inscribed in heaven ? 

2 What we have felt and seen 
With confidence we tell; 

And publish to the sons of men 
The signs infallible. 

3 We who in Christ believe 
That he for us hath died, 

We all his unknown peace receive, 
And feel his blood applied. 

4 Exults our rising soul, 
Disburden'd of her load. 

And swells, unutterably lull 
Of glory and of Grod. 

5 His love, surpassing far 
The love of all beneath, 

A^'e find within our hearts, and dare 
The pointless darts of death. 

6 Stronger than death or hell 
The sacred power we prove ; 

And, conqu'rors of the world, we dwell 
In heaven, who dwell in love. 

OO i Vie perfect law of love. 8. M. 

THE thing my God doth hate, 
That I no more may do. 
Thy creature, Lord, again create, 
And all my soul renew : 

2 My soul shall then, like thine, 
Abhor the thing unclean. 

And, sanctified by love divine, 
Forever cease from sin. 

3 That blessed law of thine, 
Jesus, to me impart; 

The Spirit's law of life divine, 
write it on my heart ! 

4 Implant it deep within, 
Whence it may ne'er remove, — 

The law of liberty from sin, 
Tlie perfect law of love. 

5 Tliy nature be my law, — 
Thy spotless sanctity ; 

And sweetly every moment draw 
^ly happy soul to thee. 

6 Soul of my soul, remain 1 
Who didst for all fulfil, 

In me, Lord, fulfil again 
Thy heavenly Father's will. 

OoO Vie word of God, quick and powerful. S. M. 
riUIY word, almighty Lord, 
J- Where'er it enters in. 
Is "harper than a two-edged sword, 

To slay the man of sin. 
2 Thy word is power and life ; 

It bids confusion cease, 
And changes envy, hatred, strife. 

To love, and joy, and peace. 



3 Then let our hearts obey 
The gospel's glorious sound ; 

And all its fruits, from day to day, 
Be in us and abound. 

i)Z\j Glorimis liberty. 

OCOME, and dwell in me, 
Spirit of power within; 
And bring the glorious liberty 
From sorrow, fear, and sinl 

2 The seed of sin's disease. 
Spirit of health, remove, — • 

Spirit of finish'd holiness, 
Spirit of perfect love. 

3 Hasten the joyful day 
Which shall my sins consume ; 

When old things shall be done away. 
And all things new become. 

4 I want the witness. Lord, 
That all I do is right, — 

According to thy will and word, — 
Well pleasing in thy sight. 

5 I ask no higher state ; 
Indulge me but in this. 

And soon or later then translate 
To my eternal bhss. 

4oO Chri>it, the guide and counsellor. 

JESUS, my truth, my way. 
My sure, unerring light. 
On thee my feeble steps I stay. 
Which thou wilt guide aright. 

2 My wisdom and my guide, 
My counsellor thou art; 

O never let me leave thy side, 
Or from thy paths depart. 

3 I lift mine eyes to thee. 
Thou gracious, bleeding Lamb, 

That I may now enhghten'd be, 
And never put to shame. 

4 Never will I remove 

Out of thy hands my cause ; 
But re3t in thy redeeming love, 
And hang upon thy cross. 

5 make me all like thee, 
Before I hence remove ; 

Settle, confirm, and 'stablish me, 
And build me up in love. 

6 Let me thy witness live. 
When sin is all destroy'd ; 

And then my spotless soul receive. 
And take me home to God. 

482 TTiy will he done. 

THIS is thy will, I know. 
That I should holy be ; 
Should let my sins this moment go, 

This moment turn to thee. 
2 might I now embrace 

Thine all-sufficient power, 
And never more to sin give place, 
And never grieve thee more.

And claim'd me for his own.

And brought into distress ; 
lie shook and bound the strong man, arm'd 

In his self-righteousness. 

3 Faded my virtuous show, — 
My form without the power ; 

The sin-convincing Spirit blew, 

And blasted every flower :

Cover'd my guilty face ;

And I was saved by grace.

And give up all for thee.

559 The throne of grace. S. M. 

BEHOLD the throne of grace; 
The promise calls us near; 
There Jesus shows a smiling face, 
And waits to answer prayer. 

2 Thine image, Lord, bestow, — 
Thy presence and thy love, — 

That we may serve thee here below, 
And reign with thee above. 

3 Teach us to live by faith, — 
Conform our wills to thine; 

Let us victorious be in death. 
And then in glory shine. 

4 If thou these blessings give, 
And thou our portion be. 

All worldly joys we'll gladly leave, 
To find our heaven in thee. 

418 Waiting at the cross. 8. M. 

FATHER, I dare believe 
Thee merciful and true : 
Thou wilt my guilty soul forgive, — 
My fallen soul renew. 

2 Come then, for Jesus' sake. 
An I bid my heart be clean; 

An eii'l of all my troubles make, — 
An end of all my sin. 

3 I cannot wash my heart, 
But by believing thee, 

Anl waiting for thy blood to' impart 
The spotless purity. 

4 While at thy cross I lie, 
Jesus, the grace bestow ; 

Xow thy all-cleansing blood apply. 
And I am white as snow. 

20 i Ttie labourers arejti-. S. M. 

LORD of the harvest, hear 
Thy needy servants' cry ; 
Answer our faith's effectual prayer. 
And all our wants supply. 

2 On thee we humbly wait, — 
Our wants are in thy view ; 

The harvest, tmly, Lord, is great. 
The labourers are few. 

3 Convert and send forth more 
Into tliy Church abroad, 

And let them speak thy word of power 
As workers with their God. 

4 let them spread thy name, — 
Their mission fully prove; 

Thy universal grace proclaim, — 
Thine all-redeeming love. 

810 Fear of offending God. S. M. 

LORD, if thou hast bestow'd 
On me this gracious fear, 
This horror of offending God, — 

keep it always here ; — 
2 And that I never more 

May from tliy ways depart. 
Enter, with all thy mercy's powei^ 
And dwell within my heart 
17 



1/12 "■Stand up, and bleMS the Lord fonvei-r S. M. 

THOU, Lord, art God alone: 
Those countless worlds of thine. 
Those heavens and heavenly spirits, own 
Thy maj«siy divine. 

2 Earth is thy footstool made, 

Great universal Lord ; 
And all things are in being stay'd 

By thy pie^erving word. 

? At thy command we rise, 

Thy gracious Name to bless; 
And thee, the Lord of earth and skies, 

We joyfully confess. 

4 Our joy, to sing of thee ; 
To triumph in thy love ; 

And this, transporting thought, shall be 
Our endless work above. 

124 Thanks fur the xmspeakahle gift. S. M. 

FATHER, our hearts we lift 
Up to thy gracious throne, 
And thank thee for the precious gift 
Of thine incarnate Son. 

2 His infant cries pi'oclaim 

A peace 'twixt earth and heaven : 
Salvation, through his only Name, 
To all mankind is given. 

3 The gift unspeakable 
We thankfully receive, 

And to the world thy goodness tell, 
And to thy glory live. 

1 May all mankind receive 

The new-born Prince of peace. 
And meekly in his spirit live, 
And in his love increase. 

5 Till he convey us home, 
Cry every soul aloud, — 

Come, thou Desire of nations, come, 
And take us up to God. 

1098 The pledge of immortality. 8. M. 

OUR great Creator, God, 
Who built this house of clay. 
Can re-inspire the breathless clod 
In his appointed day. 
Fiom dust he form'd us man, 

And shall we doubt his power? 
No, surely the Almighty can 
Our moulder'd dust restore. 

2 Who breathed into our earth 
The breath of life divine, 

Can. by a new celestial birth, 

God and the sinner join: 
Thus we the pledge receive 

Of immortality, 
Sure that our bodies too shall lire 

Forever one with thee.

2 The song of Moses and Vie Lamb. S. M. 


4 may no gloomy crime 


A WAKE, and sing the song 
A Of Moses and the Lamb ; 


Pollute the rising day; 
Or Jesus' blood, like evening dew, 
Wash all the stains away. 


Wake, every heart and every tongue 


To praise the Saviour's Name, 


5 May we this lif,' improve, 


2 Sing of his dying love ; 


To mourn for errors past; 


Sing of his rising power ; 


And live this short, revolving day, 


Sing how he intercedes above 


As if it were our last. 


For those whose sins he bore. 




3 Ye pilgrims, on the road 


275 Obeying the command S. K 


To Zion's city, sing; 


TESTIS, we thus obey 

«J Thy last and kindest word; 

Here, in tliine own appointed way, 


Rejoice ye in the Lamb of God^ — 


in Christ, the' eternal King. 


4 Soon shall we hear him say, — 


We come to meet our Lord. 


Ye blessed children, come; 
Soon will he call us hence away, 
To our eternal home. 


2 The way thou hast enjoin'd, 

Thou wilt therein appear; 
We come with confidence to find 


5 There shall each raptured tongue 


Thy special presence here. 


His endless praise proclaim ; 




And sweeter voices tune the song 


8 Whate'er the' Almighty can 


Of Moses and the Lamb. 


To pardon'd sinners give. 




The fulness of our God made man, 


72,0 Tlie standard of the cross. S. M. 


We here with Christ receive. 


■ TARK, how the watchmen cry ! 
- -1 Attend the trumpet's sound ; 


346 Seek Him while he may be found. 3. M. 


Stand to your arms, the foe is nigh, — 


IV/TY son, know thou the Lord; 
1t1 Thy father's God obey ; 


The powers of hell surround. 


Who bow to Christ's command. 


Seek his protecting care by night, 


Your arms and hearts prepare ; 


His guardian hand by day. 


The day of battle is at hand, — 
Go forth to glorious war. 




2 Call, while he may be found; 




Seek him while he is near; 


2 See on the mountain top 


Serve him with all thy heart and mind, 


The standard of your Grod ; 


And worship him with fear. 


In Jesus' name 'tis lifted up. 
All stain'd Avith hallow'd blood. 




3 If thou wilt seek his face, 


His standard-bearers, now 


His ear will hear thy cry; 


To all the nations call: 


Then shalt thou find his mercy sure, 


To Jesus' cross, ye nations, bow; 


His grace forever nigh. 


He bore the cross for all. 


4 But if thou leave thy God, 


3 Go up with Christ your Head ; 

Your Captain's footsteps see; 
Follow your Captain, and be led 


Nor choose the path to heaven; 


Then shalt thou perish in thy sins. 
And never be forgiven. 


To certain victory. 




All power to him is given ; 


561 The Hearer of prayer. S. M, 


He ever reigns the same: 


TTE praying souls, rejoice, 
1 And bless your Father's Name; 


Salvation, happiness, and heaven, 


Are all in Jesus' Name. 


With joy to him lift up your voice. 


(>0o Morning : Tlie Day-star from on high. 8. M. 


And all his love proclaim. 


TTTE lift our hearts to thee, 
VV Day-star from on high! 
The sun it<elf is but thy shade, 
Yet cheers both earth and sky. 


2 Your mournful cry he hears; 
He marks your feeblest groan. 


Supplies your wants, dispels your fears. 


And makes his mercy known. 


2 let thy rising beams 


3 To all his praying saints 


The night of sin disperse, — 


He ever will attend, 


The mists of error and of vice, 


And to their sorrows and complaints 


Which shade the universe. 


His ear in mercy bend. 


3 How beauteous nature now; 


4 Then let us still go on, 


How dark and sad before ; 


In his appointed ways. 


With joy we view the pleasing change, 


Rejoicing in his Name alone,^ 


And nature's God adore. 


In prayer and humble praise

237 Love for Zion. S. M. 

I LOVE thy kingdom, Lord,— 
Tlie house of thme abode, — 
Th ' Church our blest Redeemer saved 
With liis own precious blood. 

2 I love thy Church, God ! 
Her walls before thee stand, 

Di-ar as the apple of thine eye, 
And graven on thy hand. 

3 For her my tears shall fall ; 
For her my prayers ascenii ; 

To her my cares and toils be given. 
Till toils and cares shall end. 

4 Beyond my highest joy 

I prize her heavenly ways; 
Her sweet communion, solemn vows, 

Her hymns of love and praise. 
Sure as thj^ truth shall last, 

To Zion shall be given 
The brightest gloi-ies earth can yield, 

And brighter bliss of heaven. 

bo^ lifjoicing in Clirhfs restontiff love. S. M 

SPEAK that word again ; 
It cheers my drooping heart : 
How sweetly doth it soothe my pain, 
And bid my fears depart. 

2 And dost thou deign to own 
A worm so vile as I ? 

And may I still approach thy throne, 
And Abba, Father, cry? 

3 My Saviour, by his word. 
Hath turn'd my night to day ; 

And all those heavenly joys restored 
Which I had sinn'd away. 

4 I wonder and adore : 
The grace is all divine : 

Lord, keep me, that I sin no more 
Against such love as thine. 



I ( K) I Flea/or sparinff jnercy. 

LORD, let me know mine end; 
My days, how brief their date; 
That I may timely comprehend 
How frail my best estate. 

2 My life is but a span ; 

Mine age is naught with thee; 
And. in his highest honour, man 
Is dust and vanity. 

3 At thy rebuke the bloom 
Of earthly beauty flies; 

And grief shall like a moth consume 
All that delights our eyes. 

4 Have pity on my fears ; 
Hearken to my request; 

Turn not in silence from my tears, 
But give the mourner rest. 

5 spare me yet, I pray ; 
Awhile my strength restore, 

Ere I am summon'd hence away. 
And seen on earth no more. 



All things in Christ.

THOU very-present aid 
In sufif'ring and distress ; 
The mind which still on thee ia stay'd, 
Is kept in perfect peace. 

2 The soul by faith reclined 
On the Redeemer's breast, 

'Mid raging storms, exults to find 
An everlasting rest. 

3 SoiTOw and fear are gone 
Whene'er thy face appears; 

It stills the sighing orphan's moan, 
And dries the widow's tears. 

4 It hallows every cross; 
It sweetly comforts me ; 

Makes me forget my every loss, 
And find my all in thee. 

5 Jesus, to whom I fly, 
Doth all my wishes fill ; 

What though created streams are dry ? 
I have the fountain still. 

6 Stripp'd of each earthly friend, 
I find them all in one : 

And peace and joy which never end, 
And heaven, in Christ, begun. 

JOO God shall wipe envoy all tears. S. M 

OWHAT a mighty change 
Shall Jesus' sufi''rers know. 
While o'er the happy plains they range, 

Incapable of woe ! 
No ill-requited love 

Shall there our spirits wound: 
No base ingratitude above, — 
No sin in heaven is found. 

2 There all our griefs are spent: 
There all our sorrows end : 

We cannot there the fall lament 

Of a departed friend ; 
A brother dead to G-od, 

By sin, alas! undone: 
No father there, in passion loud, 

Cries, — my son ! my son I 

3 No slightest touch of pain. 
Nor sorrow's least alloy, 

Can violate our rest, or stain 

Our purity of joy : 
In that eternal day 

No clouds or tempests rise; 
There gushing tears are wiped away 

Forever from our eyes. 

i t/tJ Self-consecration. 

LORD, in the strength of grace. 
With a glad heart and free. 
Myself, my residue of days, 

I consecrate to thee. 
2 Thy ransom'd servant, I 

Restore to thee thine own ; 
And from this moment live or die, 
To serve my God alone.

Sober vigilance. 

THIS slumber from my spirit shake ; 
Warn'd by the Spirit's inward call, 
Let me to righteousness awake, 

And pray that I may never fall ; 
0:' give to sin or Satan place, 
But walk in all thy righteous ways. 

2 wouldst thou, Lord, thy servant guard 
'Gainst every known or secret foe ; 

A mind for all assaults prepared, 

A sober vigilance bestow ; 
Ever apprised of danger nigh. 
An 1 when to fight and when to fly. 

3 never suffer me to sleep 
Secure within the verge of hell ; 

But still my watchful spirit keep 



In lowly awe and loving zeal , 
And bless me with a godly fear, 
And plant that guardian angel here. 

4 Attended by that sacred dread, 
And wise from evil to depart. 

Let me from strength to strength proceed, 
And rise to purity of heart : 

Through all the paths of duty move, 

From humble faith to perfect love.

In my flesh shall I see God. 

I CALL the world's Redeemer mine ; 
He lives who died for me, I know, — 
Who bought my soul with blood divine; 

Jesus shall re-appear below, — 
Stand in thut dreadful day unknown. 
And fix on earth his heavenly throne. 

2 Then the last judgment-day shall come ; 
And though the worms this skin devour. 

The Judge shall call me from the tomb, 

Shall bid the greedy grave restore, 
And raise this individual me, 
God in the f|esh, my God, to see. 

3 In this identic body, I, 

With eyes of flesh refined, restored. 
Shall see that self-same Saviour nigh, 

See f)r myself my smiling Lord; 
See with ineffable delight. 
Nor faint to bear the glorious sight. 

4 Then let the worms demand their prey, 
The greedy grave my reins consume ; 

With joy I drop my mould'ring clay, 
And rest till my Redeemer come; 
On Christ my life, in death rely, 
Secure that I can never die.

TO thee, great God of love, I bow. 
And prostrate in thy sight adore: 
By faith I see thee passing now : 
I have, but still I ask for more : 
A glimpse of love cannot suffice; 
My soul for all thy presence cries. 

2 ^lore favour'd than the .saints of old, 
Who now by faith approach to thee, 

Shall all, with open face, behold 
In Christ the glorious Deity ; 
Shall see and put salvation on. 
The nature of thy sinless Son. 

3 This, this is our high calling's prize; 
Thine image in thy Son I claim; 

And still to higher glories rise, 

Till, all transformed, I know thy name. 
And glide to all my heaven above, — 
My highest heaven in Jesus' love.

Institution of the Lord's Supper. 

IX that sad, memorable night, 
Wlien Jesus was for us betray 'd, 
He lelt his death-recording rite: 

He took, and blest, and brake the bread ; 
And gave his own their last bequest, 
And thus his love's intent express'd : — 

2 Take, eat, this is my body, given 

To purchase life and peace for you, — 
Pardon, and holiness, and heaven : 

Do this, my dying love to show : 
Accept your precious legacy, 
.And thus, my friends, remember me. 

3 He took into his hands the cup, 
To crown the sacramental feast, • 

And, full of kind concern, look'd up. 

And gave to them what he had blest: 
And, — Drink ye all of this, — he said, — 
In solemn mem'ry of the dead. 

4 This is my blood, which seals the new 
Eternal cov'nant of my grace : 

My blood, so freely shed for you. 
For you and all the sinful race : 
My blool, that speaks your sins forgiven, 
And justifies your claim to heaven. 

God is in this place. 

LO ! God is here ! let us adore. 
And own how dreadful is this place : 
Let all within us feel his power. 

And silent bow before his face ; 
"Who know his power, his grace who prove. 
Serve him with awe, with rev'rence love. 

2 Lo ! God is here ! him day and night 
United choirs of angels sing : 

To him, enthroned above all height, 

Heaven's host their noblest praises bring : 
Disdain not, Lord, our meaner song, 
Who praise thee with a stamm'ring tongue. 

3 Being of beings ! may our praise 
Thy courts Avith grateful fragrance fill; 

Still may we stand before thy face. 

Still hear and do thy sov'reign will; 
To thee may all our thoughts arise. 
Ceaseless, accepted sacrifice. 

793 1st P. M. 6 lines 8s. 

TriumpJiant confidence iii the Saviour. 

STILL nigh me, my Saviour, stand, * 
And guard in fierce temptation's hour : 
Hide in the hollow of thy hand ; 

Sliow forth in me thy saving power: 
Still be thy arms my sure defence, 
Nor earth nor hell shall pluck me thence. 

2 Since thon hast bid me come to thee, 
(Good as thou art, and strong to save,) 

I'll walk o'er life's tempestuous sea, 
U))born by the unyielding wave; 

Dauntless, though rocks of pride be near, 

And yawning whirlpools of despair. 



3 When darkness intercepts the skies. 
And sorrow's waves around me roll. 

And high the storms of troubles rise, 

And half o'erwhelm my sinking soul ; 
My soul a sudden calm shall Ibel, 
And hear a whisper, — Peace ; be still I 

4 Though in affliction's furnace tried, 
Unhurt, on snares and death I'll tread ; 

Though sm assail, and liell, thrown wide, 
Pour all its flames upon my head ; 
Like Moses' bush I'll mount the higher, 
And flourish, unconsumed, in fire.

Oynnipotence and immutahiliti/. 

¥HEX Israel out of Egypt came. 
And left the proud oppressor's land, 
Supported by the great I AM, 

Safe in the hollow of his hand. 
The Lord in Israel reign'd alone, 
And Judah was his fav'rite throne. 

2 The sea beheld his power, and fled. 
Disparted by the wond'rous rod ; 

Jordan ran backward to its head, 

And Sinai felt the' incumbent God ; 
The mountains skipp'd like frighten'd rams, 
The hills leap'd after them as lambs. • 

3 What ail'd thee, thou trembling sea ? 
What horror turn'd the river back? 

Was nature's God displeased with thee ? 

And why should hills or mountains shake ? 
Ye mountains huge, that skipp'd like rams? 
Ye hills, that leap'd as frighten'd lambs ? 

4 Earth, tremble on, with all thy sons, 
In presence of thy awful Lord, 

Whose power inverted nature owns. 
Her only law his sov'reign word : 
He shakes the centre with his rod, 
And heaven bows down to Jacob's God. 

5 Creation, varied by his hand. 
The' omnipotent Jehovah knows ; 

The sea is turn'd to solid land. 

The rock into a fountain flows : 
And all things, as they change, proclaim 
The Lord eternally the same. 

822 1st P. M. 6 lines 8s. 

Circumspection. 

¥ATCH'D by the world's malignant eye, 
Who load us with reproach and shame, 
As servants of the Lord most high. 
As zealous for his glorious Name, 
We ought in all his paths to move 
With holy fear and humble love. 

2 That wisdom. Lord, on us bestow, 

From every evil to depart; 
To stop the mouth of every foe. 

While, upright both in life and heart, 
The proofs of godly fear we give. 
And show them how the Christians live.

An int'rest in the Saviour's blood ? 
Died he for me, who caused his pain ? 

Foi- me, who him to death pursued ? 
Amazini'- love! how can it be, 
Taat thou, my Lord, shouldst die for me ? 

2 'Tis myst'ry all, — ih' Immortal dies! 
Who can explore his strange design? 

la vain the first-born seraph tries 

To sound the depths of love divine ; 
'Tis mercy all ! let earth adore : 
Let angel minds inquire no more. 

3 He left his Father's throne above ; 
(So free, so infinite his grace !) 

Emptied himself of all but love, 
And bled for Adam's helpless race; 

'Tis mercy all, immense and free. 
For, my God, it found out me 1 

4 Long my imprison'<l spirit lay, 

Fast bound in sin and nature's night : 
Thine eye diffused a quick'ning ray;

My chains fell off, my heart was free, —

5 No condemnation now I dread, — 
Jesus, with all in him, is mine ; 

Alive in him, my living Head, 

And clothed in righteousness divine. 
Bold I approach the' eternal throne. 
And claim the crown, through Christ my own.

JESUS, was ever love like thine ? 
Thy life a scene of wonder is; 
Thy death itself is all divine, 

While, pleased thy spirit to dismiss^ 
Thou dost out of the flesh retire, 
And like the Prince of life expire. 

2 Thy death supports the dying saint; 
Thy death my sov'reign comfort be ; 

While feeble flesh and nature faint, 

Arm with thy mortal agony ; 
And fill, while soul and body part, 
With life, immortal life, my heart. 

3 let thy death's mysterious power, 
With all its sacred weight descend. 

To consecrate my final hour,- — 

To bless me with thy peaceful end : 
And, breathed into the hands divine. 
My spirit be received with thine.

More full of grace than I of sin,--- 
Yet once again I seek thy face ; 

Open thine arms and take me in I 
And freely my backslidiiigs heal, 
And love the faithless sinner still. 

2 Thou know'st the way to bring me back,— • 
My fallen spirit to restore ; 

! for thy truth and mercy's sake. 
Forgive, and bid me sin no more : 

The ruins of my soul repair, 

And make my heart a house of prayer. 

3 Ah, give me. Lord, the tender heart, 
That trembles at the' approach of sin; 

A godly fear of sin impart ; 

Implant and root it deep within, 
That I may dread thy gracious power. 
And never dare to' offend thee more.

His blood for me did once atone. 
And still he loves and guards his own.

I ask in faith his promised aid, 

The waves an awful distance keep, 

And shrink fiom my devoted liead: 
Fearless, their violence I dare ; 
They cannot harm, for God is there I 

3 To Him mine eye of faith I turn. 
And through the fire pursue my way; 

The fire forgets its power to burn, — 
The lambent flames around me play: 

1 own his power, accept the sign. 
And shout to prove the Saviour mine.

Through Jesus to thy throne apply.

Father, in Jesus' name we pray ; 

And still we cry and wrestle on. 
Till mercy take our sins away : 
Hear from thy dwelling-place in heaven, 
And now pronounce our sins forgiven.

Let Israel's Consolation, hear ; 
Hear, Holy Ghost, our joint request. 
And show thyself the Comforter; 
And swell the' unutterable groan. 
And breathe our wishes to the throne.

By sin eternally undone, 

Unless thou magnify thy grace. 

And make thy richest mercy known, 
And make thy vanquish'd rebels find 
Pardon in Christ for all mankind.

To every soul thy Son reveal, 

Our guilt and j-ujBTrings to remove, 

Our deep, original wound to heal ;

And tuin our earth to paradise.

And show me rdl thy goodness, show ;

Tell me thy name, thy nature tell.

Yet thee, my Lord, have I not known ?

Tell me, tell me, who thou art. 
And speak thy name into my heart

With me, the abject sinner, me.

SAVIOUR of all, what hast thou done ?, 
What hast thou sufifer'd on tlie tree ? 
Why didst thou groan thy mortal groan, 

Obedient unto death for me ? 
The myst'ry of thy passion show, — 
The end of all thy griefs below. 

2 Pardon, and grace, and lieaven to buy, 
My bleeding sacrifice expired ; 

But didst thou not my pattern die, 
That, by thy glorious Spirit fired. 
Faithful to death I might endure, 
And make the crown by sufi^ring sure ? 

3 Thou did.^t the meek example leave. 
That. 1 miL'ht in thy footsteps tread; 

Might like the Man of sorrows grieve. 

And groan, and bow with thee my Head: 
Thy dying in my body bear. 
And all thy state of sufi^ring share.

n RE AT God ! what do I see and hear! 
VT The end of things created ; 
The Judge of manlcind doth appear, 

On clouds of glory seated : 
The trumpet sounds ; the graves restore 
The dead which they contain'd before ; — 
Prepare, my soul, to meet him. 

2 The dead in Christ shall first arise, 
At the last trumpet's sounding, 

Caught up to meet him in the skies, 
With joy their Lord surrounding : 

No gloomy fears their souls dismay ; 

His presence sheds eternal day 
On those prepared to meet him. 

3 Great God ! what do I see and hear ! 
The end of things created : 

Behold the Judge of man appear. 

On clouds of glory seated : 
Low at his cross I view the day 
When heaven and earth shall pass away, 
And thus prepare to meet him.

JESUS, thou sov'reign Lord of all, — 
The same through one eternal day, — 
Attend thy feeblest foll'wer's call. 

And 0, instruct us how to pray ! 
Pour out the supplicating grace, 
And stir us up to seek thy face. 

2 We cannot think a gracious thought, 
We cannot feel a good desire, 

Till thou, who callest worlds from naught. 

The power into our hearts inspire ; 
And then we in the Spirit groan. 
And then we give thee back thine own. 

3 Come in thy pleading Spirit down 
To us who for thy coming stay ; 

Of all thy gifts we ask but one, — 

We ask the constant power to pray ; 
Indulge us, Lord, in this request, 
Thou canst not then deny the rest,

The ever-present Saviour. 

JESUS, to thee our hearts we lift, 
Our hearts with love to thee o'erflow, 
With thanks for thy continued gift, 

That still thy gracious Name we know ; 
Retain our sense of sin forgiven, 
And wait for all our inward heaven. 

2 What mighty troubles hast thou shown 
Thy feeble, tempted foU'wers here: 

We have through fire and water gone ; 

But saw thee on the floods appear, 
And felt thee present in the flame, 
And shouted our Deliv'rer's name. 

3 Thou who hast kept us to this hour, 
O keep us faithful to the end 1 

When, robed in majesty and power, 

Our Jesus shall from heaven descend, 
Bis friends and witnesses to own, 
And seat us on his glorious throne.

Broken vov}S lamented. 

OGOD ! how often hath thine ear 
To me in willing mercy bow'd ; 
While, worshipping thine altar near, 

Lowly I wept, and strongly vow'd : 
But ah ! the feebleness of man ! 
Have I not vow'd and wept in vain ? 
2 Return, Lord of Hosts, return ! 

Behold thy servant in distress; 
My faithlessness again I mourn ; 

Again forgive my faithlessness ; 
And to thine arms of mercy take, 
And bless me for the Saviour's sake.

The covenant signed and sealed. 

THIS day the covenant I sign, — 
The bond of sure and promised peace; 
Nor can I doubt its power divine, 

Since seal'd with Jesus' blood it is ; 
That blood I take, that blood alone, 
And make the cov'nant peace mine own. 
2 But, that my faith no more may know 

Or change, or interval, or end, — 
Help me in all thy paths to go, 

And now, as e'er, thy voice attend ; 
And deign, Lord, to call me thine. 
And I will dare to call thee mine.

A sacrifice for guilty man, 
By the eternal Spirit made 
An offring in the sinner's stead, — 
Our everlasting Priest art thou, 
Pleading thy death for sinners now. 

2 Thy ofi"ring still continues new; 
Thy vesture keeps its crimson hue ; 
Thou art the ever-slaughter'd Lamb, 
Thy priesthood still remains the same; 
Thy years, Lord, can never fail ; 
Thy goodness is unchangeable.

But stand unshaken as thy love : 
Sure evidence of things unseen, 
Passing the years that intervene, 
Now let it view upon the tree 

The Lord, who bleeds and dies for me.

To me, to me, thy goodness show , 
Thy beatific face display, 
The brightness of eternal day. 
2 Before my faith's enlighten'd eyes, 

Make all thy gracious goodness pass ;

Reveal thy love, thy glorious name.

Talk o'er the records of thy will. 
And search the oracles divine. 
Till every heartfelt word be mine.

Subject of all my converse be ; 

So will the Lord his foU'wer join, 

And walk and talk himself with me : 
So shall my heart his presence prove, 
And burn with everlasting love. 

3 Ofl as I lay me down to rest, 
may the reconciling word 

Sweetly compose my weary breast; 
While on the bosom of my Lord 
I sink in blissful dreams away, 
And visions of eternal day. 

4 Rising to sing my Saviour's praise, 
Thee may I publish all day long : 

And let thy precious word of grace

Fill all my life with purest love, 
And join me to the church above.

Shall save me till my latest hour ; 
And when I lay this body down, 
Reward with an immortal crown. 

2 Jesu=?, in thy great name I go. 
To conquer death, my final foe ; 
And when I quit this cumbrous clay, 
And soar on angels' wings aw^ay. 
My soul the second death defies, 
And reigns eternal in the skies. 

3 Eye hath not seen, nor ear hath heard. 
What Christ has for his saints prepared. 
Who conquer through their Saviour's might, 
Wlio sink into perfection's height, 

An'l trample death beneath their feet. 
And gladly die their Lord to meet. 

4 Dost thou desire to know or see 
What thy mysterious name shall be? 
Contending for thy heavenly home, 
Thy latest foe in death o'ercome; — 
Till then thou searchest out in vain, 
What only conquest can explain.

Tlie witness of entire consecration. 

COME, Holy Ghost, all-quick'ning fire, 
Come, and in me delight to rest; 
Drawn by the lure of strong desire, 

O come and consecrate my breast. 
The temple of my soul prepare, 
And fix thy sacred presence there. 
2 If now thine influence I feel, 

If now in thee begin to live, , 



Still to my heart thyself reveal ; 
Give me thyself, forever give : 
A point my good, a drop my store, 
Eager I ask, I pant for more. 

3 Eager for thee I ask and pant, 
So strong the principle divine 

Carries me out with sweet constraint, 

Till all my hallow'd soul is thine ; 
Plunged in the Godhead's deepest sea, 
And lost in thy immensity. 

4 My peace, my life, my comfort thou, 
My treasure and my all thou art ; 

True witness of my sonship, now 

Engraving pardon on my heart : 
Seal of my sins in Christ forgiven, 
Earnest of love, and pledge of heaven.

Resolution to return. 

YES, from this instant, now, I will 
To my ofi*ended Father cry ; 
My base ingratitude I feel; 

Vilest of all thy children, I ; 
Not worthy to be call'd thy son; 
Yet will I thee my Father own. 

2 Guide of my Hfe hast thou not been, 
And rescued me from passion's power ? 

Ten thousand times preserved from sin, 

Nor let the greedy grave devour ? 
And wilt thou now thy wrath retain, 
Nor ever love thy child again ? 

3 If thou hast call'd me to return, — 
If weeping at thy feet I fall, — 

The prodigal thou wilt not spurn, 

But pity and forgive me all, 
In answer to my Friend above, — 
In honour of his bleeding love. 

551 IstP. M. e^mesSs. 

Victorious prayer. 

YIELD to me now, for I am weak. 
But confident in self-despair ; 
Speak to my heart, in blessings speak ; 
Be conquer'd by my instant prayer : 
Speak, or thou never hence shalt move. 
And tell me if thy name be Love. 

2 'Tis Love I 'tis Love ! thou diedst for me. 
I hear thy whisper in my heart ; 

The morning breaks, the shadows flee ; 

Pure, universal Love thou art: 
To me, to all, thy bowels move, — 
Thy nature and thy name is Love. 

3 ^My prayer hath power with God ; the grace 
Unspeakable I now receive ; 

Through faith I see thee face to face ;• 

I see thee face to face and live 1 
In vain I have not wept and strove ; 
Thy nature and thy name is Love. 

4 I know thee. Saviour, who thou art,— 
Jesus, the feeble sinner's Friend: 

Nor wilt thou with the night depart, 
But stay and love me to the end: 
Thy mercies never shall remove ; 
Thy nature and thy name is Love.

To fertile vales and dewy meads,

Where peaceful rivers, soft nnd slow, 
Amid the verdant landscape flow. 

3 Though in a bare and rugged way. 
Through devious, lonely wilds I stray. 
Thy bounty shall my pains beguile, 
The barren wilderness shall smile, 

With sudden greens and herbage crown'd, 
And streams shall murmm- all around. 

4 Though in the paths of death I tread, 
With gloomy horrors overspread, 

My steadlast heart shall fear no ill, 
For thou, Lord, art with me still :

And guide me through the dreadful shade.

MESSIAH, joy of every heart, 
Thou, thou the King of glory art, 
The Father's everlasting Son : 
Thee it delights thy Church to own; 
For all our hopes on thee depend, 
Wliose glorious mercies never end. 

2 AYhen thou hadst render'd up thy breath, 
And, dying, drawn the sting of death, 
Thou didst from earth triumphant rise, 
And ope the portals of the skies; 

That all who trust in thee alone, 
Miglit follow, and partake thy throne. 

3 Seated at God's right hand again, 
Thou dost in all his glory reign ; 
Thou dost, thy Father's image, shine 
In all the attributes divine ; 

And thou with judgment clad shalt come 
To seal our everlasting doom. 

4 Wherefore we now for mercy pray ; 
Saviour, take our sins away : 
Before ihou as our Judge appear, ^ 

In dreadful majesty severe, 
Appear our Advocate Avith God, 
And save the purchase of thy blood. 

Tlie signature, of divine lots. 

¥HEN shall I hear the inward voice, 
Which only faithful souls can hear ? 
Pardon, and peace, and heavenly joys 

Attend the promised Comforter :

And Clirist, and all with Christ, are mine.

Nor visit as a transient guest ; 

But fix in me his constant home. 

And keep possession of my breast ; 
And make my soul his loved abode.

Attest that I am born again ; 

Come, and baptize me now with fire, 
Nor let thy former gifts be vain :

Where is the earnest of my heaven ? 

4 Where the indubitable seal, 

That ascertains the kingdom mine ?

Fulness of love, of heaven, of God !

Thou seest, at last, I willing am, 

Where'er thou go'st, to follow thee ; 
Myself in all things to deny ; 
Thine, wholly thine, to live and die. 

2 Pleasure, and wealth, and praise no mor" 
Shall lead my captive soul astray; 

My fond pursuits I all give o'er ; 

Thee, only thee, resolved to' obey ; 
My own in all things to resign. 
And know no other will but thine.

The power of prayer. 

WONDROUS power of faithful prayer ! 
What tongue can tell the' almighty grace? 
God's hands or bound or open are, 

As Moses or Elijah prays : 
Let Moses in the Spirit groan, 
And God cries out, — Let me alone ! — 

2 Let me alone, that all my wrath 
May rise, the wicked to consume : 

While justice hears thy praying faith, 

It cannot seal the sinner's doom : 
My Son is in my servant's prayer, 
And Jesus forces me to spare. 

3 Father, we ask in Jesus' name ; 
In Jesus' power and spirit pray ; 

Divert thy vengeful thunder's aim ; 

turn thy threat' ning wrath away I 
Our guilt and punishment removp. 
And magnify thy pard'ning love. 

4 Father, regard thy pleading Son ; 
Accept his all-avaihng prayer ; 

And send a peaceful answer down, 

In honour of our Spokesman there : 
Whose blood proclaims our sins forgiven, 
And speaks thy rebels up to heaven.

Let all my works in thee be Avrought, —

But let me all thy words obey: 
Serve with a single heart and eye, 
And to thy glory live and die.

Small as it is, 'tis all my store; 
More shouldst thou have if I had more.

No longer mine, but thine I am : 

Guard thou thine OAvn, possess it whole; 
Cheer it with hope, with love inflame. 
Thou hast my spirit ; there display 
Thy glory to the perfect day.

Devoted solely to thy will : 

Here let thy light forever shine : 

This house still let thy presence fill.

In me, till all my life be love.

Since I am call'd by thy great name, 

In thee let all my thoughts unite ; 

Of all my works be thou the aim : 
Thy love attend me all my days, 
And my sole business be thy praisa

Wrestle with Christ in mighty prayer; 
Tell him, — We will not let thee go,

And risen, thy death for us to plead ? 

To write thy law of love within 

Our hearts, and make us free indeed ? 
That we our Eden might regain, 
Thou diedst, and couldst not die in vain.

And, shouting, on their wings he flies, 
And gains his rest in paradise. 

2 Saved by the merit of his Lord, 
Glory and praise to Christ he gives ;

According to his works receives ; 
And with the seed he sow'd below, 
His bliss eternally shall grow.

And grieve thy gentleness no more;

How shall I equal triumphs raise. 
Or sing my great Deliv'rer's praise.

That I, a child of wrath and hell, 

I should be call'd a child of God, 
Should know, should feel my sins forgiven, 
Blest with this antepast of heaven. 

3 And shall I slight my Father's love, 
Or basely fear his gifts to own ? 

Unmindful of his favours prove ? 

Shall I, the hallow'd cross to shun, 
Refuse his righteousness to' impart, 
By hiding it within my heart ?

And call forth all his hosts to war ; 

Though earth's self-righteous sons engage, 

Them and their god alike I dare ;

And gladly catch the healing stream;

Thither our steady course we steer, 
Aspiring to the plains of light, —

This weary world we cast behind ; 

From sti-ength to strength we travel on.

To find the New Jerusalem.

Crowns cast at the feet of Jesus. 



HARK 1 how the gospel trumpet sounds, 
As through the world the echo bounds, 
Proclaiming to a ruined race, 
That through the riches of His grace, 
Sinners may see the Saviour's face 
In endless day, in endless day. 

2 Hail, Jesus ! all victorious Lord ! 
Be thou by all mankind adored! 
For us didst thou the fight maintain, 
And o'er our foes the vict'ry gain, 
That we, with thee, might ever reign 

In endless day, in endless day. 

3 And when, through grace, our course is run, 
'Ihe battle fought, the vict'ry won, 

Then crowns unfading we shall wear. 
The glory of thy kingdom share, 
"With thee, our glorious leader, there, 
In endless day, in endless day. 

4 Then, in thy presence, heavenly King, 
In loftier strains thy praise we'll sing, 
AVhen with the blood-bought hosts we meet, 
Triumphant there, in bliss complete, 

And cast our crowns before thy feet, 
In endless day, in endless day.

BLOW ye the trumpet, blow 
The gladly-solemn sound ; 
Let all the nations know. 
To earth's remotest bound, 
The year of jubilee is come ; 
Return, ye ransom' d sinners, home, 

2 Jesus, our great High Priest, 
Hath full atonement made : 

Ye weary spirits, rest ; 

Ye mournful souls, be glad : 
The year of jubilee is come; 
Return, ye ransom'd sinners, home, 

3 Extol the Lamb of Ood,— 
The all-atoning Lamb ; 

Redemption in his blood 

Throughout the world proclaim : 
The year of jubilee is come; 
Return, ye ransom'd sinners, home. 

4 Ye slaves of sin and hell, 

Your liberty receive, 
And safe in Jesus dwell, 

And blest in Jesus live : 
The year of jubilee is come ; 
Return, ye ransom'd sinners, home.

Your heritage above, 

SI 1 all have it back unbought, 
The gift of Jesus' love :

Return, ye ransom'd sinners, home.

Of wisdom, love, and power.

Our tongues shall bless thy ISTame ; 
By thee the joyful news 
Of our salvation came, — 
The joyful news of sins forgiven, 
Of hell subdued, and peace with heaven. 

3 Jesus, our Great High Priest, 
Has shed his blood and died ; 

The guilty conscience needs 
No sacrifice beside: 
His precious blood did once atone, 
And now it pleads before the throne.

Our Conqueror and King, 

Thy sceptre and thy sword. 
Thy reigning grace, we sing : 
Thine is the power; behold we sifc 
In vrilling bonds beneath thy feet.

THE Lord Jehovah reigns. 
His throne is built on high ; 
The garments he assumes 
Are light and majesty : 
His glories shine with beams so bright, 
No mortal eye can bear the sight. 

2 The thunders of his hand 
Keep the wide world in awe ; 

His wrath and justice stand 
To guard his holy law ; 
And where his love resolves to bless. 
His truth confirms and seals the grace. 

3 Through all his mighty works 
Amazing wisdom shines; 

Confounds the powers of hell. 
And all their dark designs ; 
Strong is his arm, and shall fulfil 
His great decrees and sov'reign will. 

4 And will this sov'reign King 
Of glory condescend ; — 

And will he write his name, 
My Father and my Friend ? 
I love his Name, I love his word ; 
Join all my powers to praise the Lord

The sins of all the world away :

His glory is no longer seen, 
But God with God is man with men.

And calls his wand'ring creatures home :

Come, weary souls, to Jesus come I 
Ye all may hide you in his breast: 
Believe, and he will give you rest.

WHERE is the Saviour now, 
Whose smiles I once possessed 
Till he return, I bow. 

By heavy grief oppress'd : 
My days of happiness are gone, 
And I am left to weep alone. 

2 Where can the mourner go, 
And tell his tale of grief? 

Ah, who can soothe his woe, 
Ah, who can give relief? 
Earth cannot heal the wounded breast, 
Or give the troubled conscience rest. 

3 Jesus, thy smiles impart ; 
My gracious Lord, return. 

Bind up my broken heart. 
And bid me cease to mourn : 
Then shall this night of sorrow flee, 
And peace and heaven be found in thee.

4 There we shall meet again. 
When all our toils are o'er. 

And death, and grief, and pain, 
And parting are no more ; 
We shall with all our brethren rise. 
And see thee in the flaming skies. 

5 happy, happy day, 
That calls thy exiles home , 

The heavens shall pass away, 
The earth receive its doom : 
Earth we shall view, and heaven, destroy'd. 
And shout above the fiery void. 

6 According to his word. 
His oath, to sinners given, 

We look to see restored 

The ruin'd earth and heaven : 
In a new world his truth to prove, 
A world of righteousness and love. 

7 Then let us wait the sound 
That shall our souls release, 

And labour to be found 
Of him in spotless peace : 
In perfect hohness renew' d, 
Adorn'd with Christ, and meet for God.

Our great High Priest. 



SEE where our great High Priest 
Before the Lord appears, 
And on his loving breast 
The tribes of Israel bears : 
Never without his people seen. 
The Head of all believing men. 

2 With him, the Corner-stone, 
The living stones conjoin ; 

Christ and his Church are one, — 
One body and one vine ; 
For us he uses all his powers. 
And all he has, or is, is ours. 

3 The path of Christ our Head 
The members all pursue, 

By his good Spirit led 
To act and suffer too : 
Like him, the toil, the cross, sustain, 
Till, glorious all, like him we reign.

AWAKE, ye saints, awake I 
And hail this sacred day :

Come bless the day that God hath blest, 
Tlie type of heaven's eternal rest.

The Lord of life arose;

And vanquish'd all our foes; 
And now he pleads our cause above, 
Anl reaps the fruit of all his love. 

3 All hail, triumphant Lord 1 
Heaven with hosannas rings, 

And earth, in humbler strains, 
Thy praise responsive sings : 
Wortliy the Lamb, that once was slain, 
Tlirough endless years to live and reign.

Beneath this roof, deign to show 

How God can dwell with men below. 

2 Here may thine ears attend 
Our interceding cries, 

And grateful praise ascend, 
Like incense, to the skies : 
Here may thy soul-converting word 
With faith be preach'd, in faith be heard. 

3 Here may our unborn sons 
And daughters sound thy praise, 

And shine, like polish'd stones, 
Through long succeeding days : 
Here, Lord, display thy saving power, 
While temples stand and men adore. 

4 Here may the list'ning throng 
Receive thy truth in love : 

Here Christians join the song 
Of the redeem'd above ; 
Till all, who humbly seek thy face. 
Rejoice in thy abounding grace.

Ready thy choice to' approve,

Enter into thy wise design. 
And sweetly lose our will in thine.

In the same age and place? 



And why together brought 
To see each other's face ; — 
To join with softest sympathy, 
And mix our friendly souls in thee ?

That we might one remain ; — 

Together travel on, 

And bear each other's pain ; — 
Till all thy utmost goodness prove. 
And rise renew'd in perfect love ?

Our kindred spirits here, 

That all hereafter might 

Before thy throne appear ; — 
Meet at the marriage of the Lamb^ 
And all thy gracious love proclaim. 

5 Then let us ever bear 
The blessed end in view, 

And join with mutual care. 
To fight our passage through; 
And kindly help each other on. 
Till all receive the starry crown.

Our souls unto that day I 

With all thy fulness fill, 

A nd then transport away,-- . 
Away to our eternal rest. 
Away to our Redeemer's breast 



Glory to glory's Xing. 

GOD is gone up on high, 
With a triumphant noise, — 
The clarions of the sky 
Proclaim the' angelic joys : 
Join all on earth, rejoice and sing; 
Glory ascribe to glory's King. 

2 All power to our great Lord 
Is by the Father givt-n ; 

By angel hosts adored, 

He leigns supreme in heaven: 
Join all on earth, rejoice and sing; 
Glory ascribe to glory's King. 

3 High on his holy seat. 

He bears the righteous sway; 
His foes beneath his feet 

Shall sink and die away : 
Join all on earth, rejoice and sing; 
Glory ascribe to glory's King. 

4 Till all the earth, renew'd 
In righteousness divine, 

With all the hosts of God, 
In one great chorus join, 
Join all on earth, rejoice and sing; 
Glory ascribe to glory's King.

With all the dead awukf; 
Unto salvation wise, 
Oil in your vessels take ; 
Upstarting at the midnight cry — 
Behold the heavenly Bridegroom nigh ! 

2 He comes, he comes, to call 
The nations to his bar, 

And take to glory all 
Who meet for glory are : 
Made ready for your full reward ; 
Go forth with joy to meet your Lord. 

3 Go, meet him in the sky, 
Your everlasting Friend ; 

Your Head to glorify. 

With all his saints ascend: 
Ye pure in heart, obtain the grace 
To see, without a veil, his face. 

4 The everlasting doors 

Shall soon the saints receive, 
With seraphs, thrones, and powers, 

In glorio'-»- joy to live; 
Far from a world of grief and sin, 
With God eternally shut in. 

5 Then let us wait to hear 

The trumpet's welcome sound : 
To see our Lord appear, 

May we be watching found : 
And when thou dost the heavens bow, 
Be- found — as, Lord, thou find'st us now.

And bless the sound of Jesus' name.

No other help is found. 
No other name is given. 
By which we can salvation have ; 
But Jesus came the world to save. 

3 Jesus ! harmonious name I 
It charms the hosts above; 

They evermore proclaim, 
And wonder at, his love : 
'Tis all their happiness to gaze, — 
'Tis heaven to see our Jesus' face. 

4 His name the sinner hears, 
And is from sin set free : 



'Tis music in his ears ; 
'Tis life and victory ; 
New songs do now his lips employ. 
And dances his glad heart for joy. 

5 unexampled love ! 

O all-redeeming grace I 
How swiftly didst thou move 

To save a fallen race ! 
What shall I do to make it known, 
What thou for all mankind hast done ?

On all the world to call, — 
To bid their hearts rejoice 
In him who died for all : 
For all, my Lord was crucified ; 
For all, for all, my Saviour died.

See all the land below : 
Rivers of milk and honey rise, 
And all the fruits of paradise 

In endless plenty grow.

Favour'd with God's peculiar smile. 

With every blessing blest ; 
There dwells the Lord our Righteousness,

Our night in praise and prayer.

No moment lingers unemploy'd, ' 

Or unimproved, below : 
Our weariness of life is gone. 
Who live to serve our God alone, 

And only thee to know. 

3 The winter's night, and summer's day, 
Glide imperceptibly away, — 

Too short to sing thy praise ; 
Too few we find the happy hours, 
And haste to join those heavenly powers 

In everlasting lays. 

4 With all who chant thy name on high, 
And, Holy, holy, holy, cry, 

(A bright, harmonious throng !) 
We long thy praises to repeat. 
And ceaseless sing around thy seat 

The new eternal song.

And quench'd in death those flaming eyes, 

And bow'd that sacred head.

And by thy manifested love. 

And by thy sprinkled blood, 
Destroy the love of sin in me.

That I my heavenly Master know,- 
And serve with heart sincere. 

2 I must the fair example set ; 
From those that on my pleasure wait 

The stumbling-block remove ; 
Their duty by my life explain. 
And still in all my works maintain" 

The dignity of love. 

3 Easy to be entreated, mild. 
Quickly appeased and reconciled, 

A foll'wer of my God : 
A saint indeed I long to be. 
And lead my faithful family 

In the celestial road. 

4 Lord, if thou didst the wish infiise, 
A vessel fitted for thy use 

Into thy hands receive : 
Work in me both to will and do ; 
And show them how believers true,' 

And real Christians, live.

Pleading the sacrificial death of Christ 

OLAMB of God, for sinners slain, 
I plead with thee, my suit to gain, — 
I plead what thou hast done : 
Didst thou not die the death for me ? 
Jesus, remember Calvary, 

And break my heart of stone. 

2 Receive the purchase of thy blood, 
My Friend and Advocate with God, — 

My ransom and my peace : 
My Surety 1 thou my debt hast paid, 
For all my sins atonement made, — 

The Lord my righteousness. 

3 let thy Spirit shed abroad 
The love of my redeeming God, 

In this cold heart of mine : 
might He now descend, and lest 
Forever in this troubled breast, 

And keep me ever thine.

For them that rest in thee. 

2 We feel a strong immortal hope. 
Which bears our mournful spirits up, 

Beneath their mountain load ; 
Redeem'd from death, and grief, and pain, 
We soon shall find our friend again 

Within the arms of God. 

3 Pass a few fleeting moments more, 
And death the blessing shall restore 

Which death has snatch'd away; 
For us thou wilt the summons send, 
Vnd give us back our parted friend, 

In that eternal day. 

1072 4th P. M. 886, 8S6. 

77ie momentous question. 

AND ami only born to die ? 
And must I suddenly comply 
With nature's stern decree? 
What after death for me remains ? 
Celestial joys, or helhsh pains, 
To all eternity. 

2 How then ought I on earth to live. 
While God prolongs the kind reprieve, 

And props the house of clay ? 
My sole concern, my single care, 
To watch, and tremble, and prepare 

Against that fatal day. 

3 No room for mirth or trifling here, 
For worldly hope, or worldly fear, 

" If life so soon is gone ; 
If now the Judge is at the door, 
And all mankind must stand before 
The' inexorable throne ! 

4 No matter which my thoughts employ, 
A moment's misery or joy ; 

But ! when both shall end, 
Where shall I find my destined place ? 
Shall I my everlasting days 

With fiends or angels spend ? 

5 Nothing is worth a thought beneath, 
But how I may escape the death 

That never, never dies I 
How make mine own election sure ; 
And when I fail on earth, secure 

A mansion in the skies. 

6 Jesus, vouchsafe a pitying ray : 

Be thou my Guide, be thou my Way 

To glorious happiness. 
Ah ! write the pardon on my heart : 
And whensoe'er I hence depart, 
Let me depart in peace. 



372 4th P. M. 886, 886. 

The gift of faith. 

AUTHOR of faith, to thee I cry,— 
To thee, who wouldst not have me die, 
But know the truth and live : 
Op<^n mine eyes to see thy face ; 
Work in my heart the saving grace ; 
The life eternal give. 

2 Shut up in unbelief, I groan, 
And blindly serve a God unknown, 

Till thou the veil remove; 
The gift unspeakable impart. 
And write thy Name upon my heart, 

And manifest thy love. 

3 I know the work is only thine ; 
The gift of faith is all divine ; 

But, if on thee we call, 
Thou wilt that gracious gift bestow, 
And cause our hearts to feel and kno"vr 

That thou hast died for all. 

4 Thou bid'st us knock and enter in, — 
Come unto thee, and rest from sin, — 

The blessing seek and find : 
Thou bid'st us ask thy grace, and have ; 
Thou canst, thou wouldst, this moment save, 

Both me and all mankind. 

5 Be it according to thy word ; 
Now let me find my pard'ning Lord ; 

Let what I ask be given : 
The bar of unbelief remove ; 
Open the door of faith and love, 

An-d let me into heaven. 

13 4th P. M. 886, 886. 

The love of Jesus. 

JESUS, thou soul of all our joys. 
For whom we now lift up our voice, 
And all our strength exert, — 
Vouchsafe the grace we humlDly claim ; 
Compose into a thankful fi-ame, 
And tune thy people's heart. 

2 While in the heavenly work we join, 
Thy glory be our whole design. 

Thy glory, not our own: — 
Still let us keep this end in view, 
And still the pleasing task pursue, 

To please our God alone. 

3 Thee let us praise, our common Lord, 
And sweetly join, with one accord, 

Thy goodness to proclaim : 
Jesus, thyself in us reveal. 
And all our faculties shall feel 

Thy harmonizing Name. 

4 With calmly reverential joy, 
let us all our lives employ 

In setting forth thy love ; 
And raise in death our triumph higher, 
And sing, with all the heavenly choir, 

That endless song above.

Thi inward toitness. 

THOU great mysterious God unknown, 
Whose love hath gently led me on, 
E'en from my infant days : 
Mine inmost soul expose to view, 
And tell me if I ever knew 
Thy justifying grace. 

2 If I have only known thy fear, 
And followVi, with a heart sincere, 

Thy drawings from above : 
Now, now the further grace bestow, 
And let my sprinkled conscience know 

Thy sweet forgiving love. 

3 Short of thy love I would not stop, 
A stranger to the Gospel hope, 

The sense of sin forgiven : 

1 would not. Lord, my soul deceive. 
Without the inward witness live, 

That ante-past of heaven. 

4 If now the witness were in me, 
Would he not testify of thee, 

In Jesus reconciled ? 
And should I not with faith draw nigh. 
And boldly, Abba, Father, cry. 

And know myself thy child ? 

5 Father, in me reveal thy Son, 
And to my inmost soul make known 

How merciful thou art ; 
The secret of thy love reveal, 
And by thy hall'wing Spirit dwell 

Forever in my heart.

God a very present help in troicble. 

OGOD, thy faithfulness I plead : 
My present help in time of need. 
My great deliv'rer thou ! 
Haste to mine aid, thine ear incline. 
And rescue this poor soul of mine : 
I claim the promise now. 

2 Where is the way ? ah, show me where, 
That I thy mercy may declare, — 

The power that sets me free : 
How can I my destruction shun ? 
How can I from my nature run? 

Answer, Lord, for me. 

3 One only way the erring mind 
Of man, short-sighted man, can find. 

From inbred sin to fly : 
Stronger than love, I fondly thought 
Death, only death, can cut the knot 

Which love cannot untie. 

4 But thou, Lord, art full of grace ; 
Thy love can find a thousand ways 

To foolish man unknown : 
My soul upon thy love I cast ; 
I rest me, till the storm be past. 

Upon thy love alone. 



5 Thy faithful, wise, almighty love 
Shall every stumbling-block remove, 

And make an open way : 
Thy love shall burst the shades of death, 
And bear me from the gulf beneath 

To everlasting day.

Prayer for povo6 • ooer temptation. 

HELP, Lord, to whom for help I fly, 
And still my tempted soul stand by 
Throughout the evil day; 
The sacred watchfulness impart. 
And keep the issues of my heart, 
And stir me up to pray. 

2 My soul with thy whole armour arm ; 
In each approach of sin, alarm, 

And show the danger near : 
Surround, sustain, and strengthen me, 
And fill with godly jealousy 

And sanctifying fear. 

3 Whene'er my careless hands hang down, 

let me see thy gath'ring frown, 
And feel thy warning eye ; 

And starting, cry, from ruin's brink, — 
Save, Jesus, or I yield, I sink; 
save me, or I die. 

4 If near the pit I rashly stray, 
Before I wholly fall away, 

The keen conviction dart; 
Recall me by that pitying look, 
That kind, upbraiding glance, which broke 

Unfaithful Peter's heart. 

5 In me thine utmost mercy show. 
And make me, Hke thyself below, 

Unblamable in grace: 
Ready prepared and fitted here. 
By perfect holiness, to' appear 

Before thy glorious face. 

499 4th P. M. 8S6, 836. 

The pure in heart shall see God. 

SAVIOUR, on me the grace bestow, 
That, with thy children, I may know 
My sins on earth forgiven; 
Give me to prove the kingdom mine, 
And taste, in holiness divine. 
The happiness of heaven. 

2 Me with that restless thirst inspire, 
That sacred, infinite desire. 

And feast my hungry heart ; 
Less than thyself cannot sufiice ; 
My soul for all thy fulness cries, — 

For all thou hast and art. 

3 Jesus, the crowning grace impart ; 
Bless me with purity of heart. 

That now beholding thee, 

1 soon may view thy open face, 
On all thy glorious beauties gaze, 

And God forever see.

Panting after the fulness of love. 

OLOVE divine, how sweet thou art I 
When shall I find my willing heart 
All taken up by thee ? 

1 thirst, I faint, I die to prove 
The greatness of redeeming love, — 

The love of Christ to me. 

2 Stronger his love than death or hell ; 
Its riches are unsearchable ; 

The first-bom sons of light 
Desire in vain its depths to see ; 
They cannot reach the mystery, 

The length, the breadth, the height. 

3 God only knows the love of God ; 
that it now were shed abroad 

In this poor stony heart : 
For love I sigh, for love I pine ; 
This only portion, Lord, be mme ; 

Be mine this better part. 

4 that I could forever sit 
With Mary at the Master's feetl 

.Be this my happy choice ; 
My only care, delight, and bliss. 
My joy, my heaven on earth, be this 

To hear the Bridegroom's voice. 

5 O that I could, with favour'd John, 
Eecline my weary head upon 

The dear Redeemer's breast : 
From care, and sin, and sorrow free, 
Give me, Lord, to find in thee 

My everlasting rest.

Unity of spirit and of purpose. 

COME, wisdom, power, and grace divine; 
Come, Jesus, in thy name to join 
A happy, cln)sen band ; 
Who fain would prove thine utmost will. 
And all thy righteous laws fulfil, 
In love's benign command. 

2 If pure essential love thou art, 
Thy nature into every heart, 

Thy loving self, inspire : 
Bid all our simple souls be one. 
United in a bond unknown. 

Baptized with heavenly fire. 

3 Still may we to our centre tend, 

To spread thy praise our common end, 

To help each other on ; 
Companions through the wilderness. 
To share a moment's pain, and seize 

An everlasting crown. 

4 Jesus, our tender'd souls prepare; 
Infuse the softest social care, — 

The warmest charity ; 
The bowels of our bleeding Lamb, 
The virtues of thy wondrous name, 

The heart that was in thee. 



5 Supply what every member wants ; 
To found the fellowship of saints, 

Thy Spirit, Lord, supply ; 
So shall we all thy love receive, 
Together to thy glory live, 

And to thy glory die.

THOU God of power, thou God of love, 
Whose glory fills the realms above. 
Whose praise archangels sing. 
And veil their faces while thy cry. 
Thrice holy, to their God most High, 
Thrice holy to their King: — 

2 Thee as our God we too would claim, 
And bless the Saviour's precious name, 

Through whom this grace is given ; 
He bore the curse to sinners due, 
He forms their ruin'd souls anew, 

And makes them heirs of heaven. 

3 The veil that hides thy glory rend, 
And here in saving power descend, 

And fix thy blest abode ; 
Here to our hearts thyself reveal. 
And let each waiting spirit feel 

The presence of our God. 

1064 4th P. M. 886, 886. 

The brink of fate. 

LO ! on a narrow neck of land, 
'Twixt two unbounded seas, I stand, 
Secure, insensible: 
A point of time, a moment's space. 
Removes me to that heavenly place, 
Or shuts me up in hell. 

2 God, mine inmost soul convert, 
And deeply on my thoughtful heart 

Eternal things impress : 
Give me to feel their solemn weight, 
And tremble on the brink of fate, 

And wake to righteousness. 

3 Before me place, in dread array, 
The pomp of that tremendous day. 

When thou with clouds shalt come 
To judge the nations at thy bar ; 
And tell me. Lord, shall I be there, 

To meet a joyful doom? 

4 Be this my one great business here — 
With serious industry and fear 

Eternal bliss to' ensure ; 
Thine utmost counsel to fulfil, 
And suflfer all thy righteous will, 

And to the end endure. 

5 Then, Saviour, then my soul receive, 
Transported from this vale, to live 

And reign with thee above, 
Where faith is sweetly lost in sight. 
And hope in full, supreme delight, 

And everlastinjT: love.

Entire dependence on Christ. 

EXCEPT the Lord conduct the plan, 
The best concerted schemes are vain, 
And never can succeed ; 
We spend our wretched strength for naught; 
But if our works in thee be wrought, 
They shall be blest indeed. 

2 Lord, if thou didst thyself inspire 
Our souls with this intense desire, 

Thy goodness to proclaim ; 
Thy glory if we now intend, 
let our deeds begin and end 

Complete in Jesus' name. 

3 In Jesus' name behold we meet, 
Far from an evil world retreat, 

And all its frantic ways; 
One only thing resolved to know, 
And square our useful lives below. 

By reason and by grace. 

4 Not in the tombs we pine to dwell, 
Not in the dark monastic cell. 

By vows and grates confined ; 
Freely to all ourselves we give, 
Constrain'd by Jesus' love to live 

The servants of mankind. 

5 Now, Jesus, now thy love impart, 
To govern each devoted heart, 

And fit us for thy will ; 
Deep founded in the truth of grace. 
Build up thy rising Church, and place 

The city on the hill. 

6 let our love and faith abound ; 

let our lives, to all around, 
With purest lustre shine ; 

That all around our works may see. 
And give the glory, Lord, to thee, 
The heavenly light divine. 

511 4th P. M. 886, 886. 

77i6 blessed hope. 

BUT can it be that I should prove 
Forever faithful to thy love, — 
From sin forever cease ? 

1 thank thee for the blessed hope ; 
It lifts my drooping spirits up ; 

It gives me back my peace. 

2 In thee, Lord, I put my trust; 
Mighty, and merciful, and just, 

Thy sacred word is past ; 
And I, who dare thy word believe. 
Without committing sin shall live, — 

Shall live to God at last. 

3 I rest in thine almighty power ; 
The name of Jesus is my tower 

That hides my life above : 
Thou canst, thou wilt, my helper be ; 
My confidence is all in thee, 

The faithful God of love. 



4 Wherefore, in never-ceasing prayer, 
My soul to thy continual care 

I faithfully commend ; 
Assured that thou through life wilt save, 
And show thyself beyond the grave 

My everlasting Friend. 

846 4th P. M. 886, 8S6, 

Gratitude evinced by living to God's glory. 

BE it my only wisdom here 
To serve the Lord with filial fear, 
With loving gratitude : 
Superior sense may I display 
By shunning every evil way, 
And walking in the good. 

2 may I still from sin depart ; 
A wise and understanding heart, 

Jesus, to me be given : 
And let me through thy Spirit know 
To glorify my God below. 

And find my way to heaven. 

1028 4th P. M. 8S6, 886. 

In time of peace. 

A NATION God delights to bless, 
Can all our raging foes distress, 
Or hurt whom they surround ? 
Hid from the general scourge we are, 
Nor see the bloody waste of war. 
Nor hear the trumpet's sound. 

2 may we. Lord, the grace improve, 
By lab'ring for the rest of love — 

The soul-composing power ; 
Bless us with that internal peace. 
And all the fruits of righteousness, 

Till time shall be no more.

When war's and tumult's waves run high, 
Unmoved, above the storm they lie. 
They lodge in Jesus' breast. 

2 The plague, and dearth, and din of war. 
Our Saviour's swift approach declare. 

And bid our hearts arise : 
Earth's basis shook confirms our hope ; 
Its cities' fall but lifts us up. 

To meet thee in the skies. 

3 Thy tokens we with joy confess. 
The war proclaims the Prince of peace, 

The earthquake speaks thy power; 
The famine all thy fulness brings, 
The plague presents thy healing wings, 

And nature's final hour. 

4 Whatever ills the world befall 
A pledge of endless good we call, 

A sign of Jesus near : 
His chariot will not long delay ; 
We hear the rumbling wheels, and pray,—' 

Triumphant Lord, appear.

HOW happy is the pilgrim's lot ; 
How free from every anxious thought, 
Fioui worldly hope and fear! 
Confined to neither court nor cell, 
II s soul disdains on earth to dwell, 
He only sojourns here. 

2 This happiness in part is mine, 
A'reaily saved from low design. 

From every creature-love ; 
Biest with the scorn of finite good, 
^ly soul is lightened of its load, 

And seeks the things above. 

3 There is my house and portion fair ; 
My treasure and my heart are there, 

And my abiding home ; 
For me my elder brethren stay, 
And angels beckon me away, 

And Jesus bids me come. 

4 I come, thy servant, Lord, replies : 

1 come to meet thee in the skies, 
And claim my heavenly rest I 

Soon will the pilgrim's journey end ; 
Then, my Saviour, Brother, Friend, 
Receive me to thy brea^^t !

Willing thou art, and ready still; 
Thy help is always nigh :

And give me, Lord, give me love. 
Or at thy feet I die. 

2 To thee I lift my mournful eye : 
Why am I thus ? tell me why 

I cannot love my God. 
The hindrance must be all in me : 
It, cannot in my Saviour be ; — 

Witness that streaming blood. 

3 It cost thy blood my heart to win. 
To buy me from the power of sin, 

And make me love again: 
Come, then, my Lord, thy right assert ; 
Take to thyself my ransom'd heart. 

Nor bleed nor die in vain.

Twelve hours, in which he safely may 
His calling's work pursue ? 
Though sin and Satan still are near, 
Nor sin nor Satan can I fear, 
With Jesus in my view.

On thee, bright Sun of righteousness, 

My faith hath fix'd its eye : 
Guided by thee, through all I go. 
Nor fear the ruin spread below. 

For thou art always nigh. 

3 Ten thousand snares my paths beset, 
Yet will I, Lord, the work complete, 

Which thou to me hast given ; 
Regardless of the pains I feel. 
Close by the gates of death and hell, 

I urge my way to heaven.

He made the the shining worlds on high. 

And reigns in glory there : 
His beams are majesty and light ;

Mercy for the chief of sinners. 

DEPTH of mercy I can there be 
Mercy still reserved for me ? 
Can my God his wrath forbear ? 
Me, the chief of sinners, spare? 

2 I have long withstood his grace; 
Long provoked him to his face ; 
Would not hearken to his calls; 
Grieved him by a thousand falls. 

3 Now incline me to repent; 
Let me now my sins lament; 
Now my foul revolt deplore, 
"Weep, believe, and sin no more. 

4 Kindled his relentings are; 
Me he now delights to spare ; 
Cries, how shall I give thee up ? — 
Lets the lifted thunder drop. 

5 There for me the Saviour stands ; 
Shows his wounds, and spreads his hands; 
God is love ! I know, I feel ; 

Jesus weeps, and loves me still. 

502 5th P. M. 4 lines Ts. 

Perfect subtnisfiion. 

WHEN, my Saviour, shall I be 
Perfectly resign'd to thee ? 
Poor and vile in mine own eyes. 
Only in thy wisdom wise ? 

2 Only thee content to know, 
Ignorant of all below ? 

Only guided by thy light ? 
Only mighty in thy might? 

3 So I may thy Spirit know, 
Let him as he listeth blow ; 
Let the manner be unknown, 
St) I may with thee be one : — 

4 Fully in my life express 
All the heights of hohness; 
Sweetly let my spirit prove 
All the depths of humble love.

LOVING Jesus, gentle Lamb, 
In thy gracious hands I am ;

Serve thee all my happy days ; 
Then the world shall always see 
Christ, the holy child, in me.

Cut it short in righteousness. 
2 Speak the second time, — Be clean 1 
Take away my inbred sin; 
Every stumbling-block remove ; 
Cast it out by perfect love. 



3 Nothing less will I require ; 
Nothing more can I desire : 

None but Christ to me be given ; — 
None but Christ in earth or heaven.

From the living God depart. 

3 Jesus, let my nature feel

Speak into my soul thy Name.

2 Thou hast bought me with thy blood, 
Open'd wide the gate to God : 

Peace I ask — but peace must be. 
Lord, in being one with thee. 

3 May thy will, not mine, be done ; 
May thy will and mine be one : 
Chase these doubtings from my heart; 
Now thy perfect peace impart. 

4 Saviour ! at thy feet I fall ; 
Thou my life, my God, my all I 
Let thy happy servant be 
One for evermore with thee 1

SON of God, thy blessing grant; 
Still supply my every want ; 
Tree of life, thine influence shed : 
From thy fulness I am fed. 

2 Tend'rest branch, alas ! am I, — 
Wither without thee and die; 
Weak as helpless infancy : 

confirm my soul in thee ! 

3 Unsustain'd by thee, I fall ; 
Send the help for which I call: 
Weaker than a bruised reed. 
Help I every moment need. 

4 All my hopes on thee depend ; 
Love me, save me to the end; 
Give me persevering grace ; 
Take the everlasting praise.

Evening : Commxinion with God. 

SOFTLY now the light of day 
Fades upon our sight away ; 
Free from care, from labour free, 
Lord, we would commune with thee. 

2 Soon from us the light of day 
Shall forever pass away ; 
Tlien, from sin and sorrow free, 
Take us, Lord, to dwell with thee. 

705 ^^^^ ^- •^- ^ ^""^ ^^• 

Of one heart and of one mind. 

JESUS, Lord, we look to thee ; 
Let us in thy name agree ; 
Show thyself the Prince of Peace ; 
Bid our jars forever cease. 

2 By thy reconciling love, 
Every stumbling-block remove j 
Each to each unite, endear ; 
Come, and spread thy banner here. 

3 Make us of one heart and mind, — 
Courteous, pitiful, and kind ; 
Lowly, meek, in thought and word, — 
Altogether like our Lord. 

4 Let us for each other care ; 
Each the other's burden bear ; 
To thy Church the pattern give; 
Show how true believers live. 

5 Free from anger and from pride, 
Let us thus in God abide ; 

All the depths of love express, — 
All the heights of holiness. 

6 Let us then with joy remove 
To the family above ; 

On the wings of angels fly ; 
Show how true behevers die.

Jesus Christ the corner -atone. 

ON this stone, now laid with prayer, 
Let thy church rise, strong and fair ; 
Ever, Lord, thy Name be known. 
Where we lay this corner-stone. 

2 Let thy holy Child, who came 
Man from error to reclaim, 

A nd for sinners to atone. 

Bless, with thee, this corner-stone. 

3 May thy Spirit here give rest 
To the heart by sin oppress'd, 
And the seeds of truth be sown, 
Where we lay this corner-stone. 

4 Open wide, God, thy door, 
For the outcast and the poor. 
Who can call no house their own. 
Where we lay this corner-stone. 

5 By wise master-builders squared, 
Here be living stones prepared 
For the temple near thy throne ; — 
Jesus Christ its corner-stone.

FATHER of eternal grace. 
Glorify thyself in me ; 
Sweetly beaming in my face 
May the world thine image see.

Poor, unfriended, or unknown : 

Fix my thoughts on things above; 
Stay my heart on thee alone. 

3 To thy gracious will resign'd — 
xVll thy will by me be done ; 

Give me. Lord, the perfect mind 
Of thy well-beloved Son.

May I tread the path he trod ; 

Die with Jesus on the cross, — 
Rise with him to live with God.

Who on thee alone depend : 
Love us, save us to the end. 

2 Save us, in the prosp'rous hour, 
From the flatt'ring tempter's power ; 
From his unsuspected wiles, — 
From the world's pernicious smiles. 

3 Save us from the great and wise, 
Till they sink in their own eyes, 
Tamely to thy yoke submit, 

Lay their honour at thy feet. 

4 Never let the world break in ; 
Fix a mighty gulf between; 
Keep us little and unknown, 
Prized and loved by God alone. 

5 Let us still to thee look up, — 
Thee, thy Israel's strength and hope ; 
Nothing know, or seek, beside 
Jesus, and him crucified.

Set the burden'd sinner free ; 

Lead me to the Lamb of God; 
Wash me in his precious blood. 

3 Life and peace to me impart; 
Seal salvation on my heart ; 
Breathe thyself into my breast, — 
Earnest of immortal rest.

Keep me in the narrow way ; 
Fill my soul with joy divine ; 
Keep me, Lord, forever thine.

IN the sun, and moon, and stars, 
Signs and wonders there shall be; 
Earth shall quake with inward wars. 
Nations with perplexity. 

2 Soon shall ocean's hoary deep, 
Toss'd with stronger tempests, rise ; 

Wilder storms the mountains sweep, 
Louder thunders rock the skies. 

3 Dread alarms shall shake the proud, 
Pale amazement, restless fear; 

An<i, amid the thunder cloud, 
Shall the Judge of men appear. 

4 But though from his awful face 
Heaven shall fade, and earth shall fly, 

F^ar not ye, his chosen race. 
Your redemption draweth nigh.

MIGHTY One, before whose face 
Wisdom had her glorious seat, 
When the orbs that people space 
Sprang to birth beneath thy feet ; 

2 Source of truth, whose rays alone 
Light the mighty world of mind; 

God of love, who from thy throne 
Kindly watchest all mankind : 

3 Shed on those, who in thy Name 
Teach the way of truth and right. 

Shed that love's undying flame, — 
Shed that wisdom's guiding light.

And, in vessels light and frail.

With the billow and the gale, —

When he speaks; and, unconfined. 

Rush to battle all his storms, 
In the chariots of the wind. . 

3 Up to heaven their bark is whirl'd, 
On the mountain of the wave ; 

Down as suddenly 'tis hurl'd 
To the' abysses of the grave. 

4 Then unto the Lord they cry; 
He inclines a gracious ear. 

Sends deliv'rance from on high, 
Rescues them from all their fear. 

5 that men would praise the Lord, 
For his goodness to their race ; 

For the wonders of his word, 
And the riches of his grace.

God descend, in majesty, 
To proclaim his holy law,

Tabor's glorious steep I climb, 
At the too transporting light. 
Darkness rushes o'er my sight. 

• 3 When on Calvary I rest, 
God, in flesh made manifest, 
Shines in my Redeemer's face. 
Full of beauty, truth, and grace.

Weep and gaze my soul away ; 
Thou art heaven on earth to me. 
Lovely, mournful Calvary.

LORD, whom winds and seas obey, 
Guide us through the watery way ; 
In the hollow of thy hand 
Hide, and bring us safe to land. 

2 Jesus, let our faithful mind 
Rest, on thee alone reclined ; 
Every anxious thought repress ; 
Keep our souls in perfect peace. 

3 Keep the souls whom now we leave; 
Bid them to each other cleave ; 

Bid them walk on life's rough sea : 
Bid them come by faith to thee. 

4 Save, till all these tempests end, 
All who on thy love depend ; 
Waft our happy spirits o'er; 
Land us on the heavenly shore.

Lo ! he sets in blood no more.

Christ has burst the gates of hell: 
Death in vain forbids his rise ; 

Christ hath open'd Paradise.

Where, O death, is now thy sting? 
Once he died our souls to save ; 
Where's thy vict'ry, boasting grave ?

Made like him, hke him we rise ; 
Ours the cross, the grave, the skies.

That may joy and peace afford ; 

Let thy Spirit now impart 
Full salvation to each heart.

Let the time of joy return ; 

Those that are cast down lift up ; 
Make them strong in faith and hope.

Thee, a gracious God and kind : 
Heal the sick, the captive free ; 
Let us all rejoice in thee.

IN thy presence we appear ; 
Lord ! we love to worship here, 
When, within the veil, we meet 
Thee upon thy mercy-seat. 

2 While thy glorious Name is sung, 
Touch our lips, and loose our tongue ; 
Then our joyful souls shall bless 
Thee, the Lord our righteousness. 

3 While to thee our prayers ascend. 
Let thine ear in love attend ; 
Hear, for Jesus intercedes ; 

Hear us, for thy Spirit pleads. 

4 While thy word is heard with awe, 
And we tremble at thy law, 

Let thy Gospel's wondrous love 
Every doubt and fear remove. 

5 While thy ministers proclaim 
Peace and pardon through thy name, 
In their voices let us own 

Jesus, speaking from the throne.

Let our hearts within us bum; 
That at evening we may say, — 
We have walk'd with God to-day.

JESUS, plant and root in me 
All the mind that was in thee; 
Settled peace I then shall find ; 
Jesus' is a quiet mind. 

2 Anger I no more shall feel, — 
Always even, always still ; 
Meekly on my God reclined ; 
Jesus' is a gentle mind. 

3 I shall suffer and fulfil 

All my Father's gracious will ; 
Be in all alike resign'd ; 
Jesus' is a patient mind. 

4 When 'tis deeply rooted here, 
Perfect love shall cast out fear; 
Fear doth servile spirits bind; 
Jesus' is a noble mind. 

5 I shall nothing know beside 
Jesus, and him crucified; 
Perfectly to him be join'd; 
Jesus' is a loving mind. 

6 I shall triumph evermore ; 
Gratefiilly my God adore ; 
God so good, so true, so kind ; 
Jesus' is a thankful mind. 

7 Lowly, loving, meek, and pure, 
I shall to the end endure ; 

Be no more to sin inclined ; 
Jesus' is a constant mind. 

8 I shall fully be restored 
To the image of my Lord ; 
Witnessing to all mankind, 
Jesus' is a perfect mind.

Fly to Jesus. 

WEARY souls, that wander wide 
From the central point of bliss; 
Turn to Jesus crucified ; 

Fly to those dear wounds of his : 
Sink into the purple flood ; 
Rise into the life of Grod. 

2 Find in Christ the way of peace, 
Peace unspeakable, unknown ; 

By his pain he gives you ease, 
Life by his expiiing groan : 
Rise exalted by his fall ; 
Find in Christ your all in all. 

3 believe the record true, 

God to you his Son hath given ; 
Ye may now be happy too, 

Find on earth the life of heaven : 
Live the life of heaven above, 
All the life of glorious love. 

4 This the universal bliss, 
Bliss for every soul design'd ; 

God's original promise this, 

God's great gift to all mankind : 
Blest in Christ this moment be, 
Blest to all eternity.

ROCK of ages, cleft for me. 
Let me hide myself in thee ; 
Let the water and the blood, 
From thy wounded side which flow'd. 
Be of sin a double cure, — 
Save from wrath and make me pure. 

2 Could my tears forever flow, — 
Could my zeal no languor know, — 
These for sin could not atone ; v 
Thou must save, and thou alone ; 
In my hand no price I bring ; 
Simply to the cross I cling. 

3 While I draw this fleeting breath, 
When my eyes shall close in death. 
When I rise to worlds unknown. 
And behold thee on thy throne, — 
Rock of ages, cleft for me, 

Let me hide myself in thee.

WHEREFORE should I make my moan, 
Now the darling child is dead ? 
He to early rest is gone, — 
He to paradise is fled :

Never shall return to me. 

2 God forbids his longer stay ; 
God recalls the precious loan ; 

God hath taken him away 

From my bosom to his own : 
Surely what he wills is best ; 
Happy in his will I rest. 

3 Faith cries out, — It is the Lord, 
Let him do as seems him good I 

Be thy holy name adored ; 

Take the gift awhile bestow'd : 
Take the child no longer mine ; 
Thine he is. forever thine.

Bui-sting on the ravish'd ear: —

Come and welcome, sinner, come !

Bow the knee, — embrace the Son — 
Come and welcome, sinner, come I

Strong, and permanent, and clear : 
Spring of life, thyself impart; 
Rise eternal in my heart.

I'or reviving grace. 

LIGHT of life, — seraphic fire, — 
Love divine, — thyself impart : 
Every fainting soul inspire ; 

Shine in every drooping heart: 
Every mournful sinner cheer ; 

Scatter all our guilty gloom : 
Son of God, appear! appear! — 

To thy human temples come. 
2 Come in this accepted hour ; 

Bring thy heavenly kingdom in; 
Fill us with thy glorious power. 

Rooting out the seeds of sin : 
Nothing more can we require, — 

We will covet nothing less ; 
Be thou all our hearts' desire, — 

All our joy, and all our peace.

Clothed with immortality. 

SPIRIT, leave thy house of (tlay ; 
Ling' ring dust, resign thv breath; 
Spirit, cast thy chain? away ; 

Dust, be thou dissolved in death : 
Thus the mighty Saviour speaks, 

While the faithful Christian dies : 
Thus the bonds of life he breaks. 
And the ransom'd captive flies. 

2 Pris'ner, long detninM below, 
Pris'ner, now with freedom blest, 

Welcome from a world of woe ; 

Welcome to a land of rest : — 
Thus the choir of angels sing. 

As they bear the soul on high, 
While with hallelujahs ring 

All the regions of the sky. 

3 Grave, the guardian of our dust, 
Grave, the treasury of the skies. 

Every atom of thy trust 

Rests in hope again to rise : 
Hark ! the judgment-trumpet calls — 

Soul, rebuild thy house of clay; 
Immortality tliy walls, 

And eternity thy day.

Partneriihip of the mints in light 

JESUS is our common Lord ; 
He our loving Saviour is ; 
By his death to life restored, 

Misery we exchange for bliss ; 
Bliss to carnal minds unknown; 

'tis more than tongue can tell ; 
Only to believers shown, — 

Glorious and unspeakable. 
2 Christ, our Brother and our Friend, 

Shows us his eternal love : 
Never shall our triumphs end. 

Till we take our seats above. 
Let us walk with him in white; 

For our bridal day prepare ; 
For our partnership in light, — 

For our glorious meeting there.

SEE how great a flame aspires. 
Kindled by a spark of grace I 
Jesus' love the nations fires, — 

Sets the kingdoms on a blaze. 

To bring fire on earth he came ; 

Kin<lled in some hearts it is : 

O that all might catch the flame, 

All partake the gloi'ious bliss I 

2 When he fii-st the work begun, 
Small and feeble was his day : 

Xow the word doth swiftly run ; 

Now it wins its widening way : 
M- iT-e and more it spreads and gi-ows. 

Ever mighty to prevail ; 
Sin's strongholds it now o'erthrows, — 

Shakes the trembling gates of hell, 

3 Sons of God, your Saviour praise ! 
He the door hath open'd wide; 

He hath given the word of grace ; 

Jesus' word is glorified. 
Jesus, mighty to redeem. 

He alone the work hath wrought; 
Worthy is the work of him, — 

Him who spake a world from naught. 



4 Saw ye not the cloud arise, 

Little as a human hand ? 
Now it spreads along the skies, — 

Hangs o'er all the thirsty land ; 
Lo! the promise of a shower 

Drops ali-eady from above ; 
But the Lord will shortly pour 

All the Spirit of his love.

Crowns of glory en their head. 

2 Saints, begin the endless song; 
Cry aloud, in heavenly lays, — 

Glory doth to God belong; 

God the glorious Saviour praise : 
All salvation from him came, — 

Him who reigns enthroned on high : 
Glory to the bleeding Lamb, — 

Let the morning stars reply. 

3 Angel powers the throne surround; 
Next the saints in glory they ; 

Lull'd with the transporting sound, 
They their silent homage pay : 

Prostrate on their face, before

Then in hymns of praise adore, — 
Shout the Lamb that died for all.

See the glory-beaming star. 
Watchman, does its beauteous ray 

Aught of hope or joy foretell ? 
Trav'ler, yes, it brings the day — 
Promised day of Israel. 

2 Watchman, tell us of the night ; 
Higher yet that star ascends. 

Tvjiv'ler, blessedness and light, 

Peace and truth, its course portends. 

Watchman, will its beams, alone. 
Gild the spot that gave them birth? 

Trav'ler, ages are its own ; 

See, it bursts o'er all the earth.

For the morning seems to dawn. 

Trav'ler, darkness takes its flight; 

Doubt and terror are withdrawn.

Lo ! the Son of God is come.

Loud as mighty thunders roar. 
Or the fulness of the sea. 

When it breaks upon the shore : 
Hallelujah ! for the Lord 

God oranijootent shall reign ; 
Hallelujah ! let the word 

Echo round the earth and main. 



2 Hallelujah ! — hark ! the sound. 
From the centre to the skies, 

Wakes above, beneath, around, 

All creation's hai-monies : 
See Jehovah's banners furl'd ; 

Sheath'd his sword: he speaks — 'tis don'^', 
And the kingdoms of this world 

Are the kingdoms of his Son. 

3 He shall reign from pole to pole 
With illimitable sway ; 

He shall reign, when, like a scroll, 
Yonder heavens have pass'd away : 

Then the end ; — beneath his rod, 
Man's last enemy shall fall ; 

Hallelujah ! Christ in God, 
God in Christ, is all in all.

Retrospect of a year. 

WHILE, with ceaseless course, the sun 
Hasted through the former year, 
Many souls their race have run, 
Never more to meet us here : 
Fix'd in an eternal state, 

They have done with all below ; 
We a little longer wait. 

But how little — none can know. 

2 As the winged arrow flies 
Speedily the mark to find ; 

As the light'ning from the skies 

Darts, and leaves no trace behind,-^ 

Swiftly thus our fleeting days 
Bear us down life's rapid stream; 

Upward, Lord, our spirits raise ; 
All below is but a dream, 

3 Thanks for mercies past receive; 
Pardon of our sins renew ; 

Teach us hencefoilh how to live 

With eternity in view : 
Bless thy word to young and old ; 

Fill us with a Saviour's love ; 
And when life's short tale is told. 

May we reign with thee above.

HARK! a voice diviiles the sky : — 
Happy are the faithful dead! 
In the Lord who sweetly die. 

They from all their toils are freed ; 
Them the Spirit hath declared 

Blest, unutterably blest ; 
Jesus is their great reward, 
Jesus is their endless rest. 

2 Follow'd by their works they go. 

Where their Head is gone before; 
Reconciled by grace below, 

Grace hath open'd mercy's door; 
Justified through faith alone, -^ 

Here they knew their sins forgiven ; 
Here they laid their burden down, 

Hallow'd, and made meet for heaven.

Why will ye your Lord deny ? 
Why will ye resolve to die ?

More and more in Jesus live.

Touch'd with softest sympathy ; 
Kindly for each other care;

WHY should we lament the lot 
Of a saint in Christ d(»ceased ? 
Let the world, who know us not, 

Call us hopeless and unblest : 
When from flesh the spirit, freed, 

Hastens homeward to return. 
Mortals cry, — A man is dead I 
Angels sing, — A child is born I 

2 Born into the world above, 

They our happy brother greet ; 
Bear him to the throne of love, 

Place him at the Saviour's feet: 
Jesus^f^iles, and says, — Well done! 

Good and faithful servant thou ! 
Enter and receive thy crown; 

Ptv'ign with me triumphant now. 

'3 Angels catch the' approving sound, 

Bow, and bless the just award ; 
IL'.il the heir with glory crown'd. 

Now rejoicing with his Lord, — 
E Her joys ordain'd to know. 

Waiting for the gen'ral doom. 
Vriien the archangel's trump shall blow — 

Pise, ye dead, to judgment come ! 

1 03 Sth P. M. S7, S7, 47. 

We also shall appear with Ilim in glory. 

LIFT your heads, ye friends of Jesus, 
Partners in his patience here : 
Christ, to all believers preciou:*, 
Lord of lords, shall soon appear : 

Mark the tokens 
Of his heavenly kingdom near. 

2 Sun and moon are both confounded, 
Darken'd into endless night. 

When, with angel-hosts surrounded, 
In his Father's glory bright. 

Beams the Saviour, 
Shines the everlasting light. 

3 See the stars from heaven falling; 
Hark, on earth the doleful cry ; 

!Men on rocks and mountains calling. 
While the frowning Judge draws nigh : 

Hide us, hide us, 
Rocks and mountains, from his eye ! 

4 With what diflfrent exclamation 
Shall the saints his banner see ! 

By the tokens of his passion. 
By the marks received for me. 

All discern him : 
All with shouts cry out, — 'Tis He ! 

5 Lo! 'tis He! our hearts* Desire, 
Come for his espoused below 

Come to join us with his choir, 
Come to make our joys o'erflow: 

Palms of vict'ry, 
Crowns of glory, to bestow.

Mutual love the bond of union. 

WHILE we walk with Go<l in light, 
God our hearts doth still unite: 
Dearest fellowship we prove, — 
Fellowship in Jesus' love : 
Sweetly each, with each combined, 
In the bonds of duty join'd, 
Feels the cleansins: blood applied, — 
Daily feels that Christ hath died. 

2 Still, Lord, our faith increase; 
Cleanse fiom all uni-ighteousness : 
Thee the' unholy cannot see ; 
Make, make us meet for thee : 
Every vile affection kill ; 

Root out every seed of ill ; 

Utterly abolish sin ; 

Write thy law of love within. 

3 Hence may all our actions flow ; 
Love the proof that Chi'ist we know ; 
Alutual love the token be, 

Lord, that we belong to thee : 
Love thine image, love impart; 
Stamp it now on every heart: 
Only love to us be given : 
Lord, we ask no otlier heaven.

IN thy name, Lord, assembling, 
We, thy people, now draw near: 
Teach us to rejoice with trembling; 
Speak, and let thy servants hear; 

Heur with meekness, — 
Hear thy word with godly fear. 

2 While our days on earth are Icngthen'd, 
May we give them. Lord, to thee: 

Clieer'd by h(jpe, and daily strengthen'd, 
May we run, nor weary be; 

Till thy glory 
Without cloud in heaven wu see. 

3 There, in worship purer, sweeter, 
All thy people shall adore ; 

Sharing then in rapture greater 
Than they could conceive before: 

Full enjoyment, — 
Full and pure, for evermore.

Once for favourM sinners slain ; 
Thousand thousand saints, litrendinir, 
Swell the triunipli of Lis t'/ain : 

Halleluj.ih! 
God appears on earth to reign. 

2 Every eye shall now behold him 
Robed in dreadful majesty ; 

Those who set at naught and sold him, 
Pierced and nailM liim to the tree, 

Deeply wailing, 
Shall the true Messiah see. 

3 All the tokens of his passion 
Still his dazzling body bears: 

Cause of endless exultation 
To his ransom'd worshippers ; 

With what raptnre 
Gaze we on those glorious scars. 

4 Yea, Amen ! let all adore thee, 
High on thine eternal throne ; 

Saviour, take the power and glory; 
Make thy righteous sentence known : 

Jah ! Jehovah ! 
Claim the kingrdom for thine own.

On the things around the throne:

Points to brighter worlds above; 

Bids us look for his appearing; 
Bids us triumph in his love.

And our loins be girded round, 

Waiting for our Lord's retui-ning, —

Let us each, thy love possessing, 
Triumph in redeeming grace ; 

refresh us, 
Travelling through this wilderness.

For thy Gospel's joyful sound ;

In our hearts and lives abound ; 

May thy presence 
With us evermore be found.

Borne on angel's wings to heaven. 
Glad the summons to obey,

Ere repose our spirits seal ;

2 Though destruction walk around us, 
Though the arrows past us fly, 

Angel guards from thee surround us ; 
We are safe if thou art nigh. 

3 Though the night be dark and dreary. 
Darkness cannot hide from thee ; 

Thou art He who, never weary, 
Watchest where thy people be. 

4 Should swift death this night overtake us, 
And command us to the tomb, 

May the morn in heaven awake us, 
Clad in bright, eternal bloom.

For the dedication of a seamen's Bethel. 

THOU, who on the whirlwind ridest, 
At whose word the thunder roars, 
Who in majesty presidest 

O'er the oceans and their shores ; 
From those shores, and from the ocean. 

We, the children of the sea, 
Come to offer our devotion, 
And to give this house to thee. 

2 When, for business on great waters, 
We go down to sea in ships. 

And our weeping sons and daughters 

Hang, at parting, on our lips ; 
This our Bethel shall remind us 

That Jehovah heareth prayer ; 
And that those we leave behind us 

Are thy faithful church's care. 

3 When in port, each day that's holy 
To this house we'll press in throngs ; 

When at sea, with spirit lowly, 

We'll repeat its sacred songs. 
Outward bound, shall we, in sadness, 

Lose its flag behind the seas ; 
Homeward bound, we'll greet with gladness 

Its first floating on the breeze.

4 Homeward bound ! — with deep emotion, 

We remember, Lord, that life 
is a voyage o'er an ocean 

Heaved by many a tempest's strife. 
Be thy statutes so engraven 

On our hearts and minds, that we, 
Anchoring in death's quiet haven. 

All may make our home with thee.

Who, with love unknown before, 

Left the bright abode of heaven, 
And our sin and sorrows bore. 

3 Equal strains of warm devotion 
Let the Spirit's praise employ; 

Author of each pure emotion ; 

Source of wisdom, peace, and joy.

Glorify Jehovah's Name, 

Heavenly songs with ours are blending ; 
There the theme is still the same.

Sacred themes to you belong: 

Come, assist the choir of heaven; 
Join the everlasting song. 

3 Fill'd with holy emulation. 
We unite with those above : 

Sweet the theme — a free salvation — 
Fruit of everlasting love. 

4 Endless life in him possessing, 
Let us praise his precious name ; 

Glory, honour, power, and blessing, 
Be forever to the Lamb.

DREAD Jehovah ! God of nations ! 
From thy temple in the skies, 
Hear thy people's supplications ; 
Now for their deliv'rance rise. 

2 Lo ! with deep contrition turning, 
In thy holy place we bend ; 

Hear us, fasting, praying, mourning: 
Hear us, spare us, and defend. 

3 Though our sins, our hearts confounding, 
Long and loud for vengeance call, 

Thou hast mercy more abounding ; 
Jesus' blood can cleanse them all. 

4 Let that mercy veil transgression ; 
Let that blood our guilt efface : 

Save thy people from oppression ; 
Save from spoil thy holy place.

COME, ye piimers, poor and needy, 
Weak and wounded, sick and sore ; 
Jesns ready stands to save you. 
Full of pity, love, and power : 

He is able, 
He is willing : doubt no more. 

2 Now, ye needy, come and welcome ; 
God's free bounty glorify ; 

True belief and true repentance, — 
Every grace that brings you nigh, — 

Without money, 
Come to Jesus Christ and buy. 

3 Let not conscience make you linger ; 
Nor of fitness fondly dream : 

All the fitness he requireth 
Is to feel your need of him : 

This he gives you, — 
'Tis the Spirit's ghmm'ring beam. 

4 Come, ye weary, heavy-laden, 
Bruised and mangled by the fall; 

If you tarry till you're better, 
You will never come at all ; 

Not the righteous, — 
Sinners Jesus came to call. 

5 Agonizing in the garden, 
Your Redeemer prostrate lies ; 

On the bloody tree behold him ! 
Hear him cry, before he dies, 

It is finish'd ! — 
Sinners, will not this suffice ? 

6 Lo ! the' incarnate God, ascending, 
Pleads the merit of his blood : 

Venture on him, — venture freely; 
Let no other trust intrude : 

None but Jesus 
Can do helpless sinners good. 

7 Saints and angels, join'd in concert 
Sing the praises of the Lamb ; 

While the blissful seats of heaven 
Sweetly echo with his name :

Sung by flaming tongues above : 
Praise the mount — I'm fix'd upon it* 

Mount of thy redeeming love I 
2 Here I'll raise mine Ebenezer ; 

Hither by thy help I'm come , 
And I hope, by thy good pleasure, 

Safely to arrive at home. 
Jesus sought me when a stranger, 

Wand'ring from the fold of God 
He, to rescue me from danger, 

Interposed his precious blood. 



3 ! to grace how great a debtor 

Daily I'm constrain'd to be 1 
Let thy goodness, like a fetter. 

Bind my wand'ring heart to thee : 
Prone to wander, Lord, I feel it — 

Prone to leave the God I love ; 
Here's my heart, take and seal it ; 

Seal it for thy courts above.

ZION Stands with hills surroundiMl, 
Zion, kept by power divine : 
All her toes shall be confonnded, 

Thouj^h the world in arms combine : 

Happy Zion, — 
What a favour'd lot is thine I 

2 Every human tie may pej-ish ; 
Friend to friend nnfaithCnl prove; 

Mothers cease their own to cherish: 
Heaven an 1 earth at lust remove; 

But no clianges 
Can attcnil Jehovah's love. 

3 In the furnace God may prove thee, 
Thence to bring thee forth more bright, 

Cut can never cease to love thee ; 
Thoii art precious in his sight: 

God is wnth thee, — 
God, thine everlasting light.

LOVE divine, all love excelling, 
Joy of heaven, to earth come down ; 
Fix in us thy humble dwelling; 

All thy faithful mercies crown. 
Jesus, thou art all compassion, — 
Pur-e unbounded love thou art; 
Visit us with thy salvation; 
Enter every trembling heart. 

2 Breathe, breathe thy loving Spirit 
Into every troubled breast; 

Let us all in thee inherit; 

Let us find that second rest. 
Take away our bent to sinning; 

Alpha an I Omega be; 
End of laith, as its beginning, 

Set our hearts at liberty. 

3 Come, almighty to deliver, 
Let us all thy lile receive ; 

Suddenly retuin, an*! never, 
^ever more thy temples leave: 

Thee we would be always blessing, 
Serve thee as thy hosts above, 

Pray, ami praise thee without ceasing, 
Glory in thy perfect love. 

4 Finish then thy new creation; 
Pure and spotle.^s let us be; 

Let us see thy <:reat salvation, 

Perfectly restored in thee: 
Changed from glo:y into glory, 

Till in heaven we take our place, — 
Till we cast oiu- crowns before thee, 

Lost in wonder, love and praise.

HAPPV soul, thy days are ending, 
All thy mourning days below; 
Go, — the angel guai'ds attending, — 

To the sight of Jesus go. 
Waiting to receive thy spirit, 

Lo 1 the Saviour stands above ; 

Shows the purchase of his merit, 

Reaches out the crown of love. 



2 Struggle through thy latest passion, 

To tliy great Redeemer's breast ; 
To his uttermost salvation, 

To his everlasting rest. 
For the joy he sets before thee, 

Bear a momentary pain ; 
Die, to live a life of glory; 

Suffer, with thy Lord to reign.

God her everlasthiy light. 

HEAR what God the Lord hath spoken : 
my people, faint and few, 
Comfortless, afflicted, broken. 

Fair abodes I build for you : 
Scenes of heartfelt tribulation 

Shall no more perplex your ways ; 
You shall name your walls salvation, 

And your gates shall all be praise. 
2 Ye, no more your suns descending, 

Waning moons no more shall see; 
But, your griefs forever ending, 

Find eternal noon in me : 
God shall rise, and, shining o'er you, 

Change to day the gloom of night ; 
He, the Lord, shall be your glory — 

God your everlasting light.

In deep affliction. 

FULL of trembling expectation. 
Feeling much, and fearing more. 
Mighty God of my salvation, 
I thy timely ai 1 implore. 

2 Suff' ring Son of man, be near me, 
In my suff' rings to sustain; 

By thy sorer griefs to cheer me, — 
By thy more than mortal pain. 

3 By thy most severe temptation 
In that dark Satanic hour ; 

By thy last mysterious passion, 

Screen me from the adverse power. 

4 By thy fainting in the garden. 
By thy dreadful death, I pray, 

Write upon my heart the pardon ; 
Take my sins and fears away.

Speaking in thine eais above: 
From impending wrath release us; 
Manifest thy pard'ning love.

For his only sake receive : 

Give us to the bleeding Saviour, — 
Let us by his dying live. 

3 To thy pard'ning grace receive them, — 
Once he pray'd upon the tree ; 

Still liis bloo<l cries out — Forgive them; 
All iheir sins were laid on me.

Prays the pi'ayer on earth begun,-— 

Father, show their sins forgiven ; 
Father, glorify thy Son!

JESUS, while our hearts are bleciHiig 
O'er the spoils tliat death has won, 
We would, at this solenm meeting, 
Calmly say, — Thy will be done. 

2 Though cast down, we're not forsaken : 
Though afflicted, not alone : 

Though didst give, and though hast taken; 
Blessed Lord, — Thy will be done. 

3 Though to-day we're fill'd with mourning, 
Mercy still is on the throne ; 

With thy smiles of love returning. 
We can sing, — Thy will be done.

Thou hast taken but thine own :

HOW tedious and tasteless the hours 
When Jesus no longer I see I 
Sweet prospects, sweet birds, and sweet 
flowers, 
Have all lost their sweetness to me ; — 
The midsummer's sun shines but dim, 

The fields strive in vain to look gay ; 
But when I am happy in him, 
December's as pleasant as May. 

2 His Name yields the richest perfume. 
And sweeter than music his voice ; 

His presence disperses my gloom. 
And makes ail within me rejoice ; 

1 shouM, were he always thus nigh, 
Have nothing to wish or to fear ; 

No mortal so happy as I, — 
My summer would last all the year. 

3 Content with beholding his face. 
My all to his pleasure resign'd, 

No changes of season or place 

Would make any change in my mind: 

While blest with a sense of his love, 
A palace a toy would appear ; 

And prisons would palaces prove. 
If Jesus would dwell with me there. 

4 My Lord, if indeed I am thine, 
If thou art my sun and my song, 

Say, why do I languish and pine ? 

And why are my winters so long ? 
drive these dark clouds from my sky ; 

Thy soul-cheering presence restore ; 
Or take me to thee up on high, 

Where winter and clouds are no more.

Sweetly sounding through the skies? 
Lo ! the angelic host rejoices ; 
Heavenly hallelujahs rise.

Which they chant in hynms of joy : 

Glory in the highest, glory. 
Glory be to God most high !

Reaching far as man is found ; 

Souls redeem'd, and t^ins forgiven ! —

Heaven and earth his praises sing; 

receive whom God appointed. 

For your Prophet, Priest, and King.

We soon shall recover our home ; 
The city of saints shall appear, — 

The day of eternity come. 
From earth we shall quickly remove, 

And mount to our native abode ; 
The house of our Father above, — 
The palace of angels and God. 

2 Our mourning is all at an end, 
When, raised by the life-giving Word, 

We see the new city descend, 
Adorn'd as a bride for her Lord : 

The city so holy and clean, 

No sorrow can breathe in the air : 

No gloom of affliction or sin ; 
No shadow of evil is there. 

3 By faith we already behold 
That lovely Jerusalem here : 

Iler walls are of jasper and gold ; 

As crystal her buildings are clear ; 
Immovably founded in gi'ace, 

She stands as she ever hath stood. 
And biightly her Builder disp1a3'S, 

And flames with the glory of God.

Thou Shepherd and Guardian divine, 
My all to thy covenant care 

I, sleeping or waking, resign. 
While thou art my shield and my sun. 

The night is no darkness to nie ; 
And, fast as my minutes roll on, 
They bring me but nearer to thee. 

2 A sov'reign Protector T have, 
Unseen, yet forever at hand ; 

Unchangeably faithful to save, — 
Almighty to rule and command. 

Thy ministering spirits descend 

To watch, while thy saints are asleep ; 

By day and by night they attend, 
The heirs of salvation to keep. 

3 Their worship no interval knows; 
Their fervour is still on the wing; 

An<l while they protect my repose. 
They chant to the praise of my King. 

I, too, at the season ordain'd. 
Their chorus forever shall join ; 

And love and adore, without end, 
Their faithful Creator and mine.

At rest, and happy. 

HOW blest is our brother, bereft 
Of all that could burden his mindl 
IIow easy the soul that has left 
This wearisome body behind ! 
This earth is aflected no more 

With sickness, or shaken with pain : 
The war in the members is o'er, 
And never shall vex him again. 

2 No anger, henceforward, or shame, 
Shall redden this innocent clay : 

Extinct is the animal flame, 
And passion is vanish'd away. 

This languishing head is at rest; 
Its thinking and aching are o'er; 

This quiet, immovable breast 
Is heaved by aflQiction no more. 

3 The lids he so seldom could close, 
By sorrow forbidden to sleep. 

Now seal'd in their mortal repose. 
Have strangely forgotten to weep; 

The fountains can yield no supplies; 

" These hollows from water are free ; 

The tears are all wiped from these eyes, 
And evil they never shall see.

Who, meanly in Bethlehem born. 

Didst stoop to redeem a lost race. 
Once more to thy creatures return, 
And reign in thy kingdom of grace. 

2 wouldst thou again be made known,— 
Again in thy Spirit descend ; 

And set up, in each of thine own, 
A kingdom that never shall end ! 

Thou only art able to bless. 

And make the glad nations obey. 

And bid the dire enmity cease, 

And bow the whole world to thy sway. 

3 0, come to thy servants again, 
Who long thine appearing to know ; 

Thy quiet and peaceable reign 

In mercy establish below : 
All sorrow before thee shall fly, 

And anger and hatred be o'er ; 
And envy and malice shall die, 

And discord afflict us no more.

With Jesus ineff^ably one. 

And bright in effulgence divine. 
2 The saints in his presence receive 

Their great and eternal reward ; 
In Jesus, in heaven, they live, — 

They reign in the smile of their Lord. 
The flame of angelical love 

Is kindled at Jesus's face ; 
And all the enjoyment above, 

Consists in the rapturous gaze.

And lead me to Jesus for peace, — 
The Rock that is higher than I. 

4 enter this desolate heart, — 

Then rule o'er the heart thou hast won; 
Nor again in thine anger depart, 
But make it forever thy throne. 

Forgiveness implored. 

HOW shall a lost sinner in pain, 
Recover his forfeited peace ? 
When brought into bondage again. 

What hope of a second release ? 
Will mercy itself be so kind 

To spare a backslider like me ? 
And 0, can I possibly find 

Such plenteous redemption in thee ? 
2 Jesus, of thee I inquire, 

If still thou art able to save, — 
The brand to pluck out of the fire, 

And ransom my soul fiom the grave ? 
The help of thy Spirit restore ; 

0, show me the life-giving blood ; 
And pardon a sinner once more. 

And bring me again unto Grod. 

Vie grate diaarmed of itt terrors. 

MAN dieth and wasteth away. 
And where is he ? — Hark ! from the skies, 

1 hear a voice answer and say, — 

The spirit of man never dies ! 
His body, which came from the earth. 

Must mingle again with the sod; — 
His soul, which in heaven had birth. 

Returns to the bosom of God. 

2 No terror has death, or the grave. 
To those who believe in the Lord — 

Who know the Redeemer can save. 
And lean on the faith of his word : 

While ashes to ashes, and dust 
We give unto dust, in our gloom, 

The light of salvation we trust. 

Which hangs like a lamp in the tomb. 

3 Lord God Almighty ! to thee 
We turn, as our solace above ; 

The waters may lail from the sea, 
But never thy fountains of love : 

teach us thy will to obey, 

And sing, with one heart and accord, — 

lie gave, and he taketh away. 

And J raised be the naujc oi' the Lord. 



//(tppines.s of those whom God correcteih. 

HOW h.ippy the soi-rowiul man. 
Whose sorrow is sent from above! 
Indulged wiih a visit of pain, — 
Chastised by omnipotent love; 
The Author of all his distress 

He comes by afiiiction to know, 
And God he in heaven shall bless. 
That ever he suffer'd below. 

2 Thus, thus may I happily grieve, 
And bear the intent of his rod; 

The marks of adoption receive, — 
The strokes of a merciful God: 

With nearer access to his throne, 
My burden of folly confess; 

The cause of my miseries own. 
And ciy for an answer of peace. 

3 Father of mercies, on me. 
On nie, in affliction, bestow 

A power of applying to thee, — 
A sanctified use of my wo: 

1 would, in a spirit of prayer. 

To all thy appointments submit; 
The pledge of n)y happiness bear, 
And joyfully die at thy feet. 

4 Then, Father, and never till then, 
I all the felicity prove, 

Of hving a moment in pain, — 

Of dying in Jesus's love : 
A sufferer lieie with my Lord, 

With Jesus above I sit down; 
Receive an etmial reward, 

And glory obtain in a crown.

Tviumphant death of a brother. 

¥EEP not for a brother deceased ; 
Our loss is his infinite gain : 
A soul out of prison released, 

And freed from its bodily chain ; 
With songs let us follow his Might, 

And mount with his spirits above, 
Escaped to the mansions of light. 
And lodged in the Eden of love. 

2 Our brother the haven hath gain'd, 
Outflying the tempest an<i wind; 

His rest he hath sooner obtain'd, 
And left his companions behind, 

Still toss'd on a sea of distress, 

Hard toiling to make the blest shoie, 

Where all is assurance and peace, 
And sorrow and sin are no njore. 

3 There all the ship's company meet, 
"Who sail'd with the Saviour beneath 

With shouting each other they greet, 
And triumph o'er sorrow and death : 

The voyage of life's at an end ; 
The mortal afiiiction is past: 

The age that in heaven they spend, 
Fo:ever and ever shall last.

3 Sin's deceitfiilncss hath spread 
A hardness o'er my heart ; 

But if thou thy Spirit shed. 

The stony shall depart: 
Shed thy love, thy tenderness, 

And let me I'eel thy soft'ning power; 
Love me freely, seal my peace, 

And bid me sin no more.

TUNK, "CoNTUAST," J". 362. 

HAT now is my object and aim ? 
What now is my hope and desire ? 
To follow the heavenly Lamb, 
And after his image aspire : 
My hope is all centred in thee ; 

I trust to recover thy love ; 

On earth thy salvation to see, 

And then to enjoy it above.

Tears of joy. 

LORD, and is thine anger gonp, — 
And art thou pacified ? 
After all that I have done, 

Dost thou no longer chide? 
Let thy love my heart constrain, 

And all my restless passions sway : 
Keep me, lest I turn again 
Out of the narrow way. 

2 To the cross, thine altar, bind 
Me with the cords of love ; 

Freedom never let me find 
From thee, my Lord, to move : 

That I never, never more 

May with my much-loved Master part, 

To the posts of mercy's door, 

nail my willing heart I 

3 See my utter helplessness, 
And leave me not alone ; 

preserve in perfect peace. 
And seal me for thine own : 

More and more thyself reveal. 
Thy presence let me always find ; 

Comfort, and confirm, and heal 
My feeble, sin-sick mind. 

4 As the apple of thine eye, 
Thy weakest servant keep ; 

Help me at thy feet to lie, 

And there forever weep : 
Tears of joy mine eyes o'erflow, n 

That I have any hope of heaven ; 
Much of love I ought to know, 

For I have much forgiven.

WRETCHED, helpless, and distress'd, 
Ah! whither shall I fly? 
Ever gasping after rest, —

Naked, sick, and poor, and blind, — 
Fast bound in sin and misery, — 

Friend of sinners, let me find 
My help, my all in thee. 

2 Jesus, full of truth and grace. 
In thee is all I want; 

Be the wand'rer's resting-place, — 

A cordial to the faint : 
Make me rich, for I am poor ; 

In thee may I my Eden find : 
To the dying, health restore. 

And eye-sight to the bhnd. 

3 Clothe me. Lord, with holiness, 
With meek humility; 

Put o:i me that glorious dress, — 

Endue my soul with thee : 
Let thine image be restored ; 

Thy name and nature let me prove ; 
With thy fulness fill me, Lord, 

And perfect me in love.

Security of the righteous at the last day. 

STAND the' omnipotent decree ; 
Jehovah's will be done ; 
Nature's end we wait to see, 

And hear her final groan. 
Let this earth dissolve, and blend ^ 
In death the wicked and the just ; 
Let those pond'rous orbs descend. 
And grind us into dust : — 

2 Rests secure the righteous man ; 
At his Redeemer's beck, 

Sure to' emerge and rise again. 
And mount above the wreck : 

Lo ! the heavenly spirit towers, 

Like flames o'er nature's funeral pyre ; 

Triumphs in immortal powers, 
And claps his wings of fire. 

3 Nothing hath the just to lose. 
By worlds on worlds destroy'd ; 

Far beneath his feet he views. 
With smiles, the flaming void ; 

Sees this universe renew'd, — 

The grand millennial reign begun ; 

Shouts, with all the sons of Grod, 
Around the' eternal throne. 

4 Resting in this glorious hope, 
To be at last restored, 

Yield we now our bodies up. 

To earthquake, plague, or sword; 

List'ning for the call divine. 

The latest trumpet of the seven, 

Soon our soul and dust shall join, 
And both fly up to heaven.

GOD of my salvation, hear,

Thy blessing to leceive. 
Full of guilt, alas ! 1 am, 

But to thy wounds for refuge flee : 
Friend of sinners, spotless Lamb, 
Thy blood was shed for me. 

2 Standing now as newly slain. 
To thee I Hft mine eye; 

Balm of all my grief and pain, 

Thy blood is always nigh. 
Now as yesterday tiie same 

Thou art, and wilt forever be : 
Friend of sinners, spotless Lamb, 

Thy blood was shed for me. 

3 No good word, or work, or though r, 
Bring I to buy thy grace ; 

Pardon I accept, unbought, — 

Thy proffer I embrace. 
Coming as at first I came. 

To take, and not bestow on thee : 
Friend of sinners, spotless Lamb, 

Thy blood was shed for me.

Since thou art my guardian, no evil I fear; 
Thv rod shall defend n^e, thy staff be my stay ; 
No harm can befall with my Comforter near. 

3 Tn the nu'dst of afliiction my table is spread : 
With blessings unmeasured my cup runneth

With oil and perfume thou anointest my htjad : 
O what shall I ask of thy providence more ?

I wait thy coming fronj above: 
Ht^lp me. Saviour, speak the word,

2 Wilt thou suffer me to go 
Lamenting all my days? 

Shall I never, never know 

Thy sanctifying grace? 
W^ilt thou not thy light afford ? 

The darkness from my soul remove ? 
Help me, Saviour, speak the word. 

And perfect me in love. 

3 Thou my life, my treasure be. 
My portion here below : 

Nothing would I seek but thee, — 

Thee only would I know ; 
My exceeding great reward. — 

My heaven on earth, my heaven above : 
Help me. Saviour, speak the word. 

And perfect me in love.

Of thosv^ that are in thee: 

Son of Go'l. thyself reveal;

Drop from thy gracious eye : 
Speak the reconciling word. 

And let thy mercy melt me down; 
Turn, and look upon me. Lord, 
And break my heart of stone. 

2 Look, as when thine eye pursued 
The first apostate man, — 

Saw him welt'ring in his blood. 

And bade him rise again : 
Speak my paradise restored; 

Redeem me by thy grace alone : 
Turn, and look upon me, Lord, 

And break my heart of stone. 

3 Look, as when thy languid eye 
Was closed that we might live ; 

Father, (at the point to die 

My Saviour pray'd.) forgive ! 
Surely with that dying word 

He turns, and looks, and cries, — 'Tis done!

Thou break'st my heart of stone.

Now upon thy servants shine, 
Who seek thy praise to show.

Thy mighty hand sustains ; 

Heaven thy awful presence fills ; 

O'er all thy glory reigns : 
Yet the place of old prepared. 

By legal David's favour'd son, 
Thy peculiar blessing shared, 

And stood thy chosen throne. 

3 We, like Jesse's son, would raise 
A temple to the Lord ; 

Sound throughout its courts his praise, 

His saving Name record ; 
Dedicate a house to hirn 

Who once, in mortal weakness shrined, 
Sorrow'd, suffer'd, to redeem, 

To rescue, all mankind. 

4 Father, Son, and Spirit, send 
The consecrating flame ; 

Now in majesty descend ; 

Inscribe the living Name: 
That great Name by which we live. 

Now write on this accepted stone ; 
Us into thy hands receive ; 

Our temple make thy throne.

THOUGH troubles assail, and d?ingers affright, 
Though friends should all fail, and foes all

Yet one thing secures us, whatever betide, 
The promise assures us, — The Lord will provide. 

2 The birds, without barn or storehouse, are fed : 
From them let us learn to trust for our bread : 
His saints what is fitting shall ne'er be denied, 
So long as 'tis written, — The Lord will provide. 

3 When Satan appears to stop up our path. 
And fills us with fears, we triumph by faith ; 
He cannot take from us (though oft he has tried) 
The heart-cheering promise, — The Lord will 

provide. 

4 He tells us we're weak, — our hope is in vain ; 
The good that we seek we ne'er shall obtain : 
But when such suggestions our graces have 

tried. 
This answers all questions, — The Lord will pro- ' 
vide. 

5 No strength of our own, nor goodness we 

claim : 
Our trust is all thrown on Jesus's Name ; 
In this our strong tower for safety we hide ; 
The Lord is our power, — The Lord will provide. 

6 When life sinks apace, ami death is in vit-\v, 
The word of his grace shall comfort us through : 
Not fearing or doubting, with Christ on our side. 
We hope to die shouting, — The Lord will pro- 
vide.

No longing we find for the country behind ; 

But onward we move, 
And still we are seeking a country above : —

We thither repair ; 
Our hearts and our treasure already are there. 
We march hand in hand to Immanuel's land ; 

No matter what cheer 
We meet with on earth, for eternity's here ! 

4 The rougher the way, the shorter our stay ;

I received through the blood of the Lamb ; 

When my heart first believed, 

What a joy I received, — 
What a heaven in Jesus's name !

My Redeemer to know, 

And the angels could do nothing more, 

Than to fall at his feet, 

And the story repeat, 
And the Lover of sinners adore. 

4 Jesus all the day long 
Was my joy and my song : 

that all his salvation might see ; 

He hath loved me, I cried, 

He hath suflfer'd and died, 
To redeem even rebels like me.

i ' Sure my soul's anchor may remain ; 
The wounds of Jesus for my sin. 

Before the world's foundation slain : 
Whose mercy shall unshaken stay, 
When heaven and earth are fled away. 

2 Father, thine everlasting grace 
Our scanty thought surpasses far : 

Thy heart still melts with tenderness ; 

iMune arms of love still open are, 
Returning sinners to receive, 
That mercy they may taste, and live. 

3 love, thou bottomless abyss I 
My sins are swallowed up in thee ; 

Cover'd is my unri^^hteousness. 

Nor spot of guilt remains on me: 
While Jesus' blood, through earth and skies, 
Mercy, free, boundless mercy, cries; 



4 By faith I plunge me in this sea ; 

Here is my hope, my joy, my rest ; 
Hither, when hell assails, I flee ; 

I look into my Saviour's breast : 
Away, sad doubt and anxious fear! 
Mercy is all that's written there.

Sanctified kn^tcledge. 

COME, Father, Son, and Holy Ghost, 
To whom we for our children cry, 
The good desired, and wanted most, 

Out of thy richest grace supply: 
The sacred discipline be given. 
To train and bring them up for heaven. 

2 Error and ignorance remove ; 

. Their blindness both of heart and mind : 
Give them the wisdom from above, — 

Spotless, and peaceable, and kind : 
In knowledge pure their minds renew, 
And store with thoughts divinely true. 

3 Learning's redundant part and vain 
Be here cut off^, and cast aside : 

But let them. Lord, the substance gain; 

In every solid truth abide ; 
Swiftly acquire, and ^e'er forego 
The knowledge fit for man to know. 

4 Unite the pair so long disjoin'd, 
Knowledge and vital piety : 

Learning and hohness combined, 

And truth and love, let all men see 
In those whom up to thee we give, 
Thine, wholly thine, to die and live.

To all eternity.

This glorious hope affords?

The people that can be joyful in thee ; 



Their joy is to walk in the light of thy face, 
And still they are talking of Jesus's grace. 

3 For thou art their boast, their glory, and 

power. 
And I also trust to see the glad hour, 
My soul's new creation, a life from the dead, 
The day of salvation that lifts up my head. 

4 For Jesus, my Lord, is now my defence ; 

1 trust in his word; non<i plucks me fiom thence: 
Since I have found favour, he all things will do; 
My King and my Saviour shall make me anew.

For sorrow and sadness I joy shall receive. 
And share in the gladness of all that believe.

And constantly trample on pleasure and pain.

To make us anew, come, Lord, from above; 
The fruit of thy passion, thy holiness give :

Who bought us with his blood, — 
Enthroned above the farthest sky, 
Our Saviour God. 

2 All honour, power, and praise, 
To Jesus' Name belong; 

With hosts seraphic glad we raise 

The sacred song : 
Worthy the Lamb, they cry. 

That on the cross was slain ; 
But now, ascended up on high, 

He lives to reign. 

3 He lives to bless and save 
The souls redeem'd by grace. 

And rescue from the dreary grave 

The fallen race ; 
And soon we hope, above, 

A louder strain to sing, — 
With all our powers to praise and love 

Our Saviour King.

Triumphant trust in God. 

MY Shepherd's mighty aid. 
His dear redeeming love. 
His all protecting power display'd, 

I joy to prove. 
Led onward by my guide, 

I view the verdant scene. 
Where limpid waters gently glide 
Through pastures green. 

2 In error's maze my soul 
Shall wander now no more; 

His Spii it shall, with sweet control, 

The lost restore : 
My willing steps shall lead 

In paths of i-ighteousness ; 
His power defend ; his bounty feed; 

His mercy bless. 

3 Affliction's deepest gloom 
Shall but his love display ; 

He will the vale of death illume 

With living ray. 
My failing flesh his rod 

Shall thankfully adore ; 
My heart shall vindicate my God 

For evermore. 

4 His goodness ever nigh, 
His mercy ever free. 

Shall while I live, shall when I die, 

StiU follow me. 
Forever shall my soul 

His boundless blessings prove ; 
And while eternal ages roll, 

Adore and love.

Grant me. Lord, my heart's desire. 
There, by faitli, forever dwell :

THOUGH nature's strength decay, 
And earth and hell withstand. 
To Canaan's bounds I urge my way. 

At His command : 
The wat'ry deep I pass. 

With Jesus in my view ; 
And through the howling wilderaees 
My way pursue. 

2 The goodly land I see. 
With peace and plenty blest ; 

A land of sacred liberty 

And endless rest. 
There milk and honey flow. 

And oil and wine abound ; 
And trees of life forever grow, 

With mercy crown'd. 

3 There dwells the Lord our King, 
The Lord our Righteousness, 

Triumphant o'er the world and sin. 

The Prince of Peace; 
On Zion's sacred height. 

His kingdom still maintains ; 
And, glorious, with his saints in light 

Forever reigns. 

4 He keeps his own secure ; 
He guards them by his side : 

Arrays in garments white and pure 

His spotless bride ; 
With gioves of living joys, 

With streams of sacred bliss, 
With all the fruits of paradise. 

He still supplies. 

5 Before the great Three One 
They all exulting stand. 

And tell the wonders he hath done 

Through all their land : 
The list'ning spheres attend, 

And swell the growing fame ; 
And sing, in songs which never end. 

The wondrous Name.

I WOULD not live alway ; I ask not to stay 
Where storm after storm rises dark o'er the 
way ; 
The few lurid mornings that dawn on us here 
Are enough fur life's joys, full enough for its 
cheer. 

2 I would not live alway ; no — welcome the 

tomb ! 
Since Jesus hath lain there, I dread not its 

gloom : 
There sweet be my rest till he bid mo arise, 
To hail him in triumph descending the skies. 



3 Who, who would live alway, away from his 

God — 
Away from yon heaven, that blissful abode, 
Where rivers of pleasure flow bright o'er th(; 

plains, 
And the noontide of glory eternally reigns? 

4 There sain^s of all ages in harmony meet, 
Their Savitmi-and brethren transported to greet; 
While anthems of rapture unceasingly roll, 
And the smile of the Lord is the feast of the 

soul.

THE voice of free grace cries, — Escape to the 
mountain; 
For Adam's lost race Christ hath open'd a foun- 
tain: 
For sin and uncleanness, and every transgres- 
sion, 
His blood flows most freely, in streams of sal- 
vation. 
Hallelujah to the Lamb, who has purchased 

our pardon : 
We will praise him again when we pass over 
Jordan. 

2 Now glory to God in the highest is given ; 
Now glory to God is re-echoed in heaven ; 
Around the whole earth let us tell the glad 

story, 
And sing of his love, his salvation and glory. 
Hallelujah to the Lamb, &;c. 

3 Jesus, ride on, — thy kingdom is glorious; 
O'er sin, death, and hell, thou wilt make us 

victorious : 

Thy name shall be praised in the great congre- 
gation, 

And saints shall ascribe unto thee their salva- 
tion. 
Hallelujah to the Lamb, &c. 

4 When on Zion we stand, having gain'd the 

blest shore, 
With our harps in our hands, we will praise 
evermore : 



We'll range the blest fields on the banks of the 

river. 
And sing of redemption forever and ever. 
Hallelujah to the Lamb, &c.

FRIEND after friend departs : 
Who hath not lost a friend ? 
There is no union here of hearts 
That finds not here an end: 
Were this frail world our only rest, 
Living or dying, none were blest. 

2 Beyond the flight of time, 
Beyond this vale of death, 

There surely is some blessed clime 
Where life is not a breath. 
Nor life's affection transient fire, 
"Whose sparks fly upward to expire. 

3 There is a world above, 
Where parting is unknown ; 

A whole eternity of love, 
Foim'd for the good alone: 
And laith beholds the dying here 
Ti-anslated to that happier sphere. 

4 Thus star by star declines, 
Till all are pass'd away. 

As morning high and higher shines, 
To pure and perfect day ; 
Nor sink those stars in empty night, — 
They hide themselves in heaven's own light
